    John Oliver realising he is now a citizen of a nation of dumb-dumbs. I lived in America once and find Trump to be a very accurate representation of the average American.

    He is a left wing leftist and now he has citizenship. How a person who doesn't share american values could get citizenship. Such things were not possible back in the good old days of McCarthyism. America is killing itself.

    Look I think Brexit is step backward for the UK, but when Colbert is saying he's confused about the idea of intense British nationalism/patriotism, just look at relatively recent history. In 1939 (less than 100 years ago, many are still alive to remember it) the British EMPIRE (as it was called then) was a global player, with direct or de facto political and economic control of 25% of the world's population, and 30% of its land mass. That kind of intense conquer and rule mentality tends to coincide with intense nationalism, which Britain has had culturally for literally hundreds of years. It didn't evaporate over night.

    Honestly, I'm a dual citizen and it's a huge pain in the ass (I think that probably because I was born one) because I can't get DoD security clearance for work, but I have too much attachment to my other citizenship to give it up, so here we are.

    If you are a bikini model and marry a rich man, even if you have broken the rules by working while being in the country with a tourist visa, you will get your citizenship in record time without having to move a finger. If you are a genius like John Oliver you will have to wait for about ten years and take a test . I mean, who would want to grant citizenship to a successful genius so easily..

      @bssni touir Right. Except that John Oliver is fake all over. All he is concerned about (and able to) is striking a pose for maximum self-gratifying effect. How often have I cried in utter despair in the middle of the night: Jon Stewart, come back! His wit, intelligence, sincere concern and insightful interviews are unsurpassed to this day, and will remain so, I am afraid.
