John Oliver Dunked on Alex Jones Again and Again Last Night

170730_browbeat_jones

On Sunday night's episode of Last Week Tonight, the investigation-based comedy-news program hosted by former Daily Show correspondent John Oliver, people who only know Alex Jones from Super Deluxe spoofs learned two truths about the conspiracy-peddling maniac who hosts a four-hour talk show most week days.

"At the start of this piece, I promised Alex Jones that I would put his statements in context, because he is right, that if you play small clips in isolation he looks like a loon", Oliver said.

With some help from his own "medical expert" played by Jack McBrayer, Oliver ends the segment by revealing that he's now selling a competing version of Alex Jones's taint wipes, but you'll need one million dollars in the bank to buy them.

This GTAV space mod might be cooler than GTAV itself
The NASA research team have found remnants of alien spaceship parts scattered around the state of San Andreas. That's just the way it goes with mods, even ambitious ones like this.

And along the way during his 22-minute segment, Oliver's weekly stunt created a way to make a massive donation to Doctors Without Borders.

"We bought a whole bunch", Oliver said, highlighting Super Male Vitality and Super Female Vitality, serums sold in amber-glass dropper bottles, created to stimulate sex drive.

After pointing out that Jones should be completely disregarded because he is a frequent Sandy Hook denier, Oliver said that it's shocking to realize that what Jones is often doing on his show is "shamelessly" pushing products. As revealed on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Jones has an extensive online store that sells products ranging from the odd to the downright freakish. MIT told the show that "it is not accurate to say [Group] has a degree from MIT". Who knew. Among the many offerings available on Infowars' "life" section are vitamins sold at an incredible markup, "Wake Up America" coffee, and a supplement containing an ingredient Jones says, in a monologue with precise, meticulous comic timing, is "only found in comets. and trace amounts in blueberries". Jones's products include Caveman True Paleo Formula, "a chocolate-flavored drink mix made from bee pollen, Stevia, and the dust of chicken skeletons ..."
