Things We Saw Today: John Oliver is Not Having Billy Bush and Isn’t Afraid to Say So, Reminds Men How Best to Show Women Respect

John Oliver is amazing at speaking our truth. This time, he gleefully (and rightfully) tells the Today Show‘s Billy Bush to go eff himself for laughing along with misogyny in 2005. While he’s at it, Oliver also points out that Republicans don’t get to be shocked by the revelation of the Donald’s sexist “grab them by the p*##y” comment now, as they’ve known exactly who this man is and what he’s like all along…and supported him anyway.
