I think I’ll start watching this show now. For these reasons: Kevin Avery from the best podcast Denzel Washington Is The Greatest Actor Of All Time works on this show. I used to live in Guam because my dad was in the military. And because John Oliver absolutely kills it in this piece. Please watch.

Oliver took aim at the post-colonial mentality that has determined the voting status in Guam, where people born in the territory can be U.S citizens, but only enjoy symbolic representation in Congress and do not have the right to vote.
Oliver pointed out the irony that citizens from Guam – which gives a quarter of its land and 1/8 of its people to the U.S. military – aren’t able to vote for their country’s commander-in-chief.
