The Miss America Pageant…how is this still a thing?
They claim to give more scholarships to women than any other organization, and, unfortunately, they’re right.
To illustrate these problems, John Oliver stages his own pageant with the help of Kathy Griffin.
Here are the links to the women's scholarship funds that John mentioned on air:

WOW, what a fairytale ending! I sure hope josepie pounds cathy really hard, she sure deserves a good “hard reset”. I do wish that the show had a larger budget, he didn’t even have a shirt. Back to cathy, I would give it to her for the meanest three minutes of her life. Her and that human parrot. 💥
the pageant went from mildly offensive, stupid and boring. to borderline criminal. but they are not taking away anybody's rights, so I don't care. people should do like me, and not watch it. And women shouldn't join. problem solved.
Uhm. In Norway, education is free. To all genders. You may have to pay 50-100 dollars (rough conversion) for the resources used (like paper or use of a copy machine). But enrolling, lessons and exams etc are free and if you are smart you can order the text books through public libraries on loan for free. Its expensive to live here, food, rent etc., but the education is, by law, supposed to be free and available to all. I even got economical support for my bachelor and masters degree because I was a single mom with a toddler and therefor was unable to work while studying. I still racked up student loans, because I had to pay mortgage on my home and childcare for my daughter, but all in all I got an education I would not have gotten if I had to pay for enrolling as well.
When they start talking about trump the first thing to pop into my head was “and they all laughed not knowing that in a few short years this joke would become president of the United States, the world was in for a nightmare”
Trump may be "president" (and I use that term very loosely) of the United States, but he's still one of the ugliest souls on the planet.
Could you imagine going up to a member of his Cabinet and saying, "You wouldn't have your job if you weren't beautiful"?
John, you have no idea what the future would eventually hold for the US.
How nice it must be to still live in the past. Where people actually prefer Obama as president over who is now in office. I'll give you a hint, it's a man you insulted in this video.
The questions are so hard. One day they'll ask.
"What's the cure to cancer?"
"How do we unite the world as one nation?"
"If the world ends, what is your plan for colonizing mars?"
"How do we end ridiculous questions like this?"
How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
