Let's put "Don't Get Sick" on the dollar bill because it's about to become the national motto.

Now, no one really thinks Obamacare's perfect, even the people benefitting from it the most. So when Trump and the GOP campaigned on making this thing better, promising better coverage and lower prices, people took them at their word. 

Why? Who knows. Anyone could've predicted what would happen: Higher prices for the sick, elderly, and poor; tax cuts for the rich. So you'll never believe it, but that's exactly what happened. 

Paul Ryan's wet dream is out, and, surprise, it's great for the rich and awful for everyone else. But don't take my word for it. John Oliver tore this thing a new one on Last Week Tonight, breaking down just how bad this will be for just about everyone except a couple millionaires. 

So enjoy a laugh at the health coverage we're all about to lose.

Americans love talking about how important the Dalai Lama's "quotes" are, but not as many know exactly what he does. 

However, while Americans claim to love the Dalai Lama, one government hates his guts: China. 

On Last Week Tonight, John Oliver traveled to Dharamsala, India, where the Dalai Lama lives in exile from Tibet. There, Oliver sat down with the 14th Dalai Lama to discuss his conflict with the Chinese govenment, why he could be the last Dalai Lama, and how to cute alcoholims with horse milk.

Repealing Obamacare isn't just something that your lonely uncle is emailing you about anymore, it's actually steps away from happening, and it's going to be disastrous for millions of Americans. 

But why? Why is the government so determined to remove coverage from millions of people? Why is Paul Ryan's dream to privatize medicare when he could dream of being an astronaut or something? Why can't that guy think of a real dream worth having? 

These questions demand answers, and John Oliver has them. Watch him break down what Republicans are doing by repeatedly pointing to this graphic of your dad in a thong:

It's no surprise that our reality-TV gameshow host-in-chief lies constantly. He lives in a reality distrotion field that would make Steve Jobs jealous. It'd be amazing, really, if weren't so dangerous for literally every single person on planet Earth. So John Oliver really, really wants to burst that bubble, and he's putting the truth where Trump can see it. 

We all know that Trump likes to watch cable news. He makes it a habit of tweeting about it and even calling in to them as these shows are airing. So Last Week Tonight is running a series of commercial featuring a cowboy that switches from talking about catheters to the nuclear triad in a way that even he can understand. So while Trump is eating his morning taco bowl, let's hope he gets some medicine with his sugar.
