O.J. Simpson hears from John Oliver on why people keep requesting his opinion on the Alex Murdaugh trial.

Last Week Tonight Sunday began with John Oliver giving a brief overview of some of the most significant news stories from the previous week, including the verdict in the trial of Alex Murdaugh, who was convicted guilty of killing his wife and son.

Before presenting a clip from a video O.J. Simpson had put on social media, Oliver observed, “Of all the ill-advised pieces of commentary surrounding this blockbuster trial, perhaps no one was less welcome than this.

“Many individuals have questioned my opinion of the Alex Murdaugh trial. I don’t know why they believe I’m an authority on it,” Simpson adds in the video.

“Well, I do. I do, O.J.,” Oliver gleefully retorted. “Because there are only two things in this life that you are an expert in: football and killing spouses. Since nobody has asked you to match Alex Murdaugh’s rushing efficiency, I’m going to assume that it’s the second one there.

Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida and potential Republican presidential candidate, was Oliver’s main subject tonight. He referred to him as “business Fred Flintstone.”

He criticised DeSantis’ handling of the media as well as the contentious new laws the politician put through in Florida. He demonstrated DeSantis’ “talent at battling the media” with the Governor’s Top Gun-esque 2022 campaign ad Top Gov.

Oliver continued by displaying DeSantis’ whole encounter with a reporter, which had been edited to show him furiously berating the reporter rather than taking the heroic, tough attitude depicted in the advertisement.

For the third week in a row, the comedian continued to criticise Fox News.

DeSantis does not despise all media, to be sure. There is only one noteworthy exception, and that is the one you are imagining, Oliver remarked. “DeSantis frequently appears on Fox News. midday, evening, and night. The level of devotion between DeSantis and Fox is rather extraordinary, even by Republican standards. In just a four-month period, the network requested that he appear 113 times, or about once per day. One Fox producer even offered to let him choose the topic if he agreed to appear, which Oliver called “too sad,” according to the Tampa Bay Times.
