During last night’s return of “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver,” Oliver suggested that the Democrats should nominate RuPaul Charles to occupy the White House in 2020.
“The notion that our leaders should be able to pass on mistruths with impunity should be alarming to absolutely everybody, regardless of politics,” Oliver said. “Republicans should badly want our sense of objective reality to remain intact, just in case the Democrats ever find their own appealing reality star to win back the White House. RuPaul for instance. Make America fierce again. #MakeAmericaFierceAgain.”
Oliver made the endorsement after spending 20 minutes detailing the the culture of “alternative facts” and “fake news.”
The #MakeAmericaFierceAgain hashtag quickly began to trend on Twitter.
