We here in the media spend a lot of time breathlessly reporting revelations from the Mueller probe and attempting to push back against the witch hunt narrative that Donald Trump his TV friends on Fox News have been pushing for the last year. What we often miss, however, is the bigger picture and, as always, that’s where John Oliver steps in.

In last night’s Last Week Tonight, Oliver meticulously dismantled the entire witch-hunt counter-narrative that Trump and Sean Hannity have been using in an effort to undermine the Mueller probe (with, unfortunately, some success). It’s a masterful overview that completely rips apart Spygate, a.k.a., Hannity’s “shittiest conspiracy theory” ever, basically comparing Trump’s attacks to the O.J Simpson trial.
