The British-American comedian John Oliver dedicated the latest episode of his “Last Week Tonight” show to Italy and its upcoming elections. It is an astonishing – yet satirical – account of how Italian politics is perceived from the outside. Oliver talks about fascist threats, sexist horndogs and poisonous politicians. The only solution to the Italian crisis he could come up with is to run for prime minister himself.
Yes Italy, my candidacy for prime minister may be a complete and total farce, but be honest — incredibly, I am far from your worst option.
