John Oliver continues to try to educate Trump by purchasing ads on the president’s favorite Fox News shows. Previous ads educated the president on the nuclear triad and health care. Oliver’s new Ad educates Trump on sexual harassment. It’s also on the perfect forum: John Oliver has bought ads on the sinking O’Reilly Factor.
“In the latest version, the Catheter Cowboy begins the ad just like all the others — with a man donning a cowboy hat and standing in a library.
“Howdy, I’m a professional cowboy. I use catheters and there’s two things I know,” the man says, “I don’t like pain when I cath and repeated unwanted sexual advances or obscene remarks in the workplace constitutes sexual harassment.”
The cowboy continues: “If there’s a power disparity between the two parties, well, that’s about as inappropriate as lubricating a catheter with hot sauce, partner. Why would you do that? I do not like pain when I cath.”
“And if you’ve got a friend who was accused of something like that over and over again, I might think twice about defending him, because that just contributes to a culture where women don’t want to come forward,” the character says as he stands next to a copy of O’Reilly’s book “Culture Warrior.” “And I know you might not care about that but on some level you’ve gotta know, you’re blowing this.”
The ad closes with: “That’s all for now. Goodbye everyone watching this and definitely not one specific person.”
