John Oliver Tells U.S.: There Are 'No F---ing Do-overs'
British comedian John Oliver told Americans a simple lesson comparing Britain's vote to leave the European Union to the U.S. presidential election: Don't screw this up.
Oliver had pleaded with his native Britain to stay in the EU in the buildup to the vote.
But after the vote, Oliver showed footage of a woman who had voted to leave saying she wished she had voted differently now that the reality had set in, telling her, "That wasn't a practice round."
Oliver then criticized presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's statements praising the Brexit vote as nonsensical.
"If he had simply breathed audibly into the microphone, the same amount of information would have been conveyed," Oliver said.
There are celebrities touring the Capitol to push for legislation they support. And then there's Oscar winner Morgan Freeman.
"I had God in my office," Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse said after meeting with the actor who has played God in the movies.
Freeman came to the Capitol to stop the sale of shark fins in the United States.
"Right now, the sharks are in a lot of trouble. They're being killed for their fins," Freeman said at a Thursday news conference to announce new legislation.
The Oscar winner said he has long supported the advocacy group Oceana, which works to protects threats to the oceans and ocean life.
