Over the weekend, John Oliver said some tremendously funny things about Sepp Blatter. You should watch them.
The basis of his quick two-minute diatribe revolved around the impending faux vote for FIFA president Sepp Blatter, which comes up in less than two weeks. Despite his latent sexism, reliance on pseudo-science to claim we are all genetically racist, claims that gays should “refrain from any sexual activities” in Qatar, his intimation that a transfer practice was akin to “modern slavery,” and any other laundry list of depressing factoids, Blatter will almost assuredly be reelected.
This may surprise you. And it should. Just last week, ESPN released a documentary on Blatter that laid bare many of the issues swirling around the man. You can now watch the entire thing on YouTube.
