British comedian John Oliver went to great lengths on HBO last Sunday to explain the importance of the French election to an American audience.
The comedian reminded us that, with Brexit and a wind of nationalism sweeping across the Old Continent, the French election may very well seal the fate of the European Union. “The fate of Europe rests in the hands of a country that looks at snails and says ‘I’ve got to get you in my mouth!’”
After he introduced — and had a dig at — each candidate, John Oliver had one last piece of advice for French voters: “Don’t sit this election out! Don’t f*ck up!”
