WATCH: John Oliver Breaks Down the Stupidity of the Presidential Turkey Pardoning on “Last Week Tonight”

“Every single turkey is guilty...[and] should be serving time in the prison of my mouth.”

While Last Week Tonight is unfortunately on hiatus until February, “like a psychotic ex” the show is uploading pre-taped web-exclusive clips to hold everyone over through these cold, cold John Oliver-less months.

The latest of these clips has arrived just in time for Thanksgiving, and concerns the quintessentially ridiculous “tradition” of the Presidential turkey pardoning. The inevitably quick demise of these chosen birds aside, Oliver gets right to the crux of the matter, and ruthlessly declares war on all turkeys, pardoned or not.

You know, for a British guy, John Oliver really gets America.
