Lefty John Oliver Lashes Out at Jay Leno: ‘Go F**k Yourself’


[See NewsBusters for more.] Lefty HBO host John Oliver lashed out at Jay Leno on Sunday, trashing the former Tonight Show star after he called for more balance in political comedy. Instead of focusing on Leno’s call for more fairness, Oliver attacked the comedian as a hypocrite. In a segment on public shaming and Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky, the Last Week Tonight host noted that some comics regret their ‘90s jokes about the White House intern: “Many comedians have since publicly expressed regret about things they've said, although one who hasn't, and who was among the most relentless, was Jay Leno.” After playing a montage of cringe-inducing Leno jokes, Oliver mocked: And if that's what he means by civility, may I offer my new book, "Oh, the places you can go fuck yourself, Jay Leno."
