London Attack: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver [VIDEO]

“Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver paid tribute to the victims on Sunday night, but took exception to U.S. news outlets’ choice of the word “reeling” to describe Britain’s emotions after the attack and calling the U.K. a country “under siege.”

“In no way is Britain under siege,” Oliver said. “Is it upset? Yes. Is it pissed off? Oh, you f*cking bet it’s pissed off. But to say it’s under siege and its people are reeling is to say that it’s people are somehow weak enough to be brought to its knees by 3 monumental arseholes.”
