[See NewsBusters for more.] Hater John Oliver, the leftist host of HBO’s Last Week Tonight, on Sunday trashed Meghan McCain as “giving space for hate to grow” and tried to smear her as contributing to last week’s horrific shooting of Asian Americans in a spa. The idea of Oliver, who joked about shooting Christian Tim Tebow, deriding anyone else as hateful is absurd. Yet, Oliver did that on his March 21 show, playing a 2020 clip of The View co-host saying she “doesn’t have a problem” with referring to Covid as the “the China virus” because it “did originate in Wuhan.” The HBO host raged, “Oh, good! Meghan McCain doesn't have a problem with it! Listen not to the scores of Asian-Americans telling everyone that the term is dangerous and offensive!” He slimed, “There has to be an understanding that saying, ‘I don't have a problem with calling it the China virus’ is very much giving space for that hate to grow.”
