John Oliver Rips Trump’s Coal Plan [VIDEO]

On Last week tonight with John Oliver he dedicated his main story to Trumpโ€™s empty promises to coal miners, with the comedian citing the New York City real-estate mogulโ€™s ability to connect with the coal-mining community as โ€œa key reason that we have this cautionary Bible story in the White House.โ€

โ€œBut the point here is: Trump needs to stop lying to coal miners. We all do,โ€ he continued. โ€œStop telling them that their jobs are all coming back when theyโ€™re not. Stop telling them that coal is clean when it isnโ€™t. And stop pretending that this isnโ€™t an industry in the middle of a painfulโ€”albeit necessaryโ€”transition. An honest conversation about coal and its miners needs to be had, and we should neither cease nor desist from having it.โ€
