About: Coal: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)

informational but not funny
I was scared to watch this but it was surprisingly entertaining, heartfelt and informative. I remember watching about the Utah mine disaster on TV and as the daughter of a coal miner, I was heartbroken. I thought it was an earthquake up to this day. Eat shit bob!

Unfortunately, people in my state aren't going to listen to your message willingly. I don't want to admit coal is disappearing. But a natural boost in the industry that occurs regularly and a case of false security has made the economy boom in WV. I know it will bust but unfortunately many of our residents do not. They will vote for him in 2020, I can't see them not, but I will not. I told many people around here: voting for Hillary was like cutting off my arm - I may have lost my job but I could recover. Voting for trump cut off my leg - our country and its values are dying. I voted for Hillary despite her promising to destroy my job. It would undoubtedly be better than what Trump has done to my country.

Oh I remember the Charleston rally. Trump visits regularly and his son was at a vendor's shop near home for the Midterm election. People love him and swear he's doing good. He found a niche and exploited it to the max - now he comes back when his ego needs a fix. WV will always have his back.

Not this West Virginian and not this republican.
Grow the fuck up and actually learn how the government works or how the economy operates. Democrats do nothing but smother the economy and slow down technological progress while increasing poverty.
I really like how he humanized the other side in this one, what a great piece
I can’t wait to become president so I can fix all of these issues. 22 more years
this is one of my favourite episodes. it's hilarious how well don oliver can make people look like the garbage human beings they are e.g. bill murray, rudy giuliani
what a load of lies. tries some fact jon oliver . wind and solar energy is a liberal pipe dream
Why are birds?
on the check from the squirrel is should've said "suck my nuts" but maybe that would've been too obvious.
I am so here for a libel lawsuit! They have to prove that everything Oliver said is untrue and was used only to defame the person. They can't! Oh I want to watch Bob fail. Eat shit Bob!
Notice that Murrey sais it twice. I think he caught the Trump Double Speech Disease.Say it twice,
Say it twice.
I LOVE YOU, John Oliver.
I think everybody already thought about it, but trump helps the coal-companies CEO's and investors, not the workers by lowering the regulations and all that stuff... they have more money at the end of the year by lower taxes and state-support, but the normal people still remain with zero. Coal mining is the same as the coachman they will be replaced by technology.
I love how Hannity goes from we are all about God, faith, and family to hey b&$ch you wanna come to suck off me and Hank Williams.
Can Mr. Nutterbutter be hired?

Lumpy. 🤣🤣🤣 I want a Lumpy emoji. 🤗
11:03 that gruff, gritted-teethed, possibly drunken "FREEDURHM" in the background said it all tbh
I love it when John goes into those fictitious back stories! LOL!
