On this episode of “Last Week Tonight,” comedian John Oliver explains how DC does not have a vote in Congress and why it should become a state. Along the way he points out a number of hypocritical statements from Congressmen.
“The mayor of DC gets to run the District the way a student council president runs a high school,” Oliver says. At the end of the piece, he also explains that it’s possible to change the Constitution, and that the flag can add a star.
Oliver closes his segment with a new song about the states. Maybe we should all record ourselves singing it, and post it all over social media.
