John Oliver riffed on the bombshell that is FIFA president Sepp Blatter’s suspension as only he can.
Oliver on Sunday updated viewers of his HBO show, “Last Week Tonight,” on the latest developments at world soccer’s governing body. The British comedian-turned-American television star reacted incredulously to news of Blatter’s 90-day ban from soccer activities and the current leadership vacuum at FIFA (Warning: the clip contains adult language).
Oliver’s latest take follows a series of segments on his show in which he lampoons Blatter, former FIFA vice president Jack Warner, Russia president Vladimir Putin and many others connected with the global administration of the world’s most popular sport.
Blatter has appealed his suspension, meaning this story will continue to run and provide Oliver ammunition for future FIFA-related gems on his show.
Blatter’s exit meaningless without reforms >>
