Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Trump's Budget Proposal, Bolivian Traffic Zebras
March 20, 2017 4:32 PM - Season 4, Episode 6 - Subscribe

Over the past 10,080 minutes....
  • "President Trump, two words that continue to sound bad together, like 'Horse Pope,' or 'Dr. Oz.'" Trump meets with German Chancellor Angela Merkel for the first time, whom he denigrated often on the campaign trail. He refused to shake her hand, which was almost as weird as that hand-pull thing he does when he shakes hands.
  • Trump also doubled-down on claims that Obama tapped his phones, claiming as a source a "talented legal mind" on Fox who turned out to be noted conspiracy theorist Judge Andrew Napolitano. Even Fox News backed away from the claim. Fareed Zakaria described Trump's behavior on CNN by using the word "bullshit" and variants of it several times.
  • And Now: Morning News Shows Celebrating St. Patrick's Day Literally The Only Way They Know How.
  • Main story: The Federal Budget and Trump's plans for it, which are predictably terrible.
  • And Now: A Special St. Patrick's Day Moment From Fox & Friends.
  • Finally... Bolivian Traffic Zebras. Bolivian Traffic Zebras. People in Zebra costumes helping traffic in Bolivia. Oliver asks, what situations wouldn't be made better by a helpful person in a zebra costume, and answers: nothing. To this end, LWT has posted green screen footage of a dancing zebra to their YouTube channel, for the use and wonder of all.

Last Week Tonight is off next week.

I think it's just 24 minutes of dancing zebra. That being said, I would not object to 24 hours.

I have a fever, and the only cure is more dancing zebra.

It IS 24 minutes. I accidentally entered "h" as a typo.

That said you could always just play it 60 times in a row.
