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: Society of Women Engineers: http://societyofwomenengineers.swe.org/ Jeanette Rankin Women’s Scholarship Fund: www.rankinfoundation.org Patsy Mink Foundation: www.patsyminkfoundation.org Connect with Last Week Tonight online...

Yeah i love listening to some man who is led by a queen, and may be one himself. We listen to this person for what reason.

Did anyone else not hear what she said? 7:33 "45 million dollars made available ANALLY!" So that's where that money went... ;)

Wasn't trump connected to Miss America? Perhaps that is when they started the college scam.

That poor blonde girl probably hadnt eaten. They're asking those women to answer questions that 45 cant answer. Why is everyone held to a different standard than the president?

And now Trump is President - who new!
Christina Marsh (6 days ago)
this was prior to trump even running for president.... so i guess JOHHNY O was never a trump fan, unlike the other comedians who just talk about him now for ratings.
Jessica Ho (6 days ago)
I think this is one of my favorite episodes, along with the multi-level marketing one. Damn, I miss when there was something else to go in depth on other than 45.
Sassy Books (6 days ago)
I guess that's the difference between men and women. Yes Giuseppe is handsome but is he funny? Smart? Charming? Because those are a little bit more important in a woman's mind then just looks even if it is just for a quick lay

Back when Trump was just a joke

As much as I detest Trump, he was right about what he said.. Reporters, even weather women, are more gorgeous every year, and the sun dresses definitely have gotten shorter..

Sure Miss America is crap and I don’t watch it. Women do enter of their own free will though. They are not slaves. While I think it’s awful that they claim to give scholarships that they don’t I wish people would stop getting upset that their isn’t an even larger amount of money available just for women. I have received no benefits from being male. I never got scholarships or single break in my life. I’m a white make and my life sucks. Why should I get less opportunity than women or minorities while still being blamed for the worlds problems. I very much support equal opportunity which is why I want to actually have the same opportunity as women and everyone else not less like now. I would have loved to be able to go to and finish college but I couldn’t afford to do so.

Looking back from 2018.... was this the inaugural, historic appearance of the future POTUS Donald Trump on this show?
John Quiggins (9 days ago)
Well, that cotton candy man has just signed a document to force North Korea to get rid of their nukes and play nice. And, now the Miss America pageant has been neutered. Almost everyone here has now been certified by 60,000,000 voting American's as ridiculously sheep-like. Lol... Oh, and let's not forget Deniro's Tony fiasco. That dude has lost his damned mind. I mean, what a well thought-out remark he made. So full of substance. About as much substance as our new SJW Miss America...uh.... show? It certainly ain't gonna be a pageant any more. Not be the actual definition. I still bet no hag bag will win. I also bet no one will watch now.

Is all bullshit! get your president to come up with his fracking tax returns and you will find where most of that is going.

5:02 the ultimate "saying it like it is" moment...
Cassuttus Tshirt (10 days ago)
I wish the contestant at 4:07 was our president, not that clown made of mummified foreskin and cotton candy. She's just as qualified and seems a hell of a lot smarter.

Be careful about what you say to trump he's the president now
Logan Sloan (10 days ago)
Maybe scholarships shouldn't be based off your sex/gender? I mean, isn't that still granting scholarships because of an analysis of an individual's body? Besides, women make up a higher percentage of people in higher education, so shouldn't we be doing things for men if we are going to do anything?
Logan Sloan (10 days ago)
CKV oh yeah, that must explain why men are not being accepted as much as and are dropping out at higher rates than women.
CKV (10 days ago)
Logan Sloan I think there’s still a bias towards men that gives them in general an easier time. Not saying that every male is privileged but it’s a bit imbalanced in general

Kathy looks at John and wants to have sex with Giuseppe, Giuseppe looks at Kathy and wants to have sex with John. At least these unfunny losers took focus off Trump for a day, the pageant issue must be pretty damn important!
Blount Truth (12 days ago)
I didnt realize that the women were forced to be there to be judged... Interesting.
Imoral juptorion (12 days ago)
Beauty pageants are cool, but the fact that they try to stretch out what little good they do is the part that makes it piss. I also feel like there should be a male equivalent given a similar amount of promotion

Ahhh yes, the lefts attempt to destroy another venture, the American people will reject completely. A beauty pageant that excludes beauty, brilliant! Wonder why these women are not all brain surgeons? Oh yeah, they want to flaunt their beauty. So this is a fare the well to Miss America, as it will fall to the annuls of failed social experimentation like most all else the left has their hands in.
Harley Keiner (13 days ago)
we all blame you John Oliver....
Randy Valensin (13 days ago)
Hey maybe Bruce Jenner can compete!!! A man already won woman of the year so we might as well win miss America!!! Liberals and feminists are cutting their own throats
Carlos G (13 days ago)
What if...just what if...the girls in the pageant WANT to be judged on their looks? That's what it's been about since the beginning! Just like the body building championships are about the LOOKS of the contestants! It isn't like there was some hidden message within the pageant and they didn't know! These women are grown women. Are you telling me they were not smart enough to realize the pageant was about their looks, abilities and personality? They knew this going in! Funny thing is, the same women who think Miss America is "bad" think that women in the porn industry are empowering themselves lol!!!! Go on one of the big porn sites and type "racist porn". Let me know how empowering that is for women. Then get back to me about Miss America. If you don't want to be in the pageant...don't compete. Simple as that.

2014 when the show accepted a objective judgement of beauty. To bad they wouldnt be able to do that today. RIP old John Oliver. Political correctness is a bitch.

Tomcat1957 (14 days ago)
No one forces these women to be there, so they are there to be judged and try to win. Liberalism seems to be a mental disorder these days. If Trump said he likes air, liberal would hold their breath.

if I had a time machine I would go back to 2014 tap John Oliver on the shoulder whilst hes talking about trumps view on Miss USA and whisper in his ear "that dude becomes the leader of the free world shhh spoilers"
robertsd247 (13 days ago)
I wouldn't. I would tell him Hillary won. And then go back to the day after the election to laugh in Comrade Oliver's face.
VolkColopatrion (14 days ago)
well you got your wish. swimsuit competitions are no longer allowed. we're back to the 1940s where racism was ok and bobies are bad. who here is going to file a complaint with the IRS?

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.
