'There are no f---ing do-overs,' he warns Trump-enamored America

(Newser) – Thursday's Brexit vote is over and done, and John Oliver, who last week tried to give America (and his fellow Brits) an education on why Brexit would be a "huge destabilizing decision," took to Last Week Tonight on Sunday to discuss Britain's defection—and his reaction was neither patient nor SFW, the Week reports. Oliver first blasted the United Kingdom's name ("after this week's events, [the name] is beginning to sound a bit sarcastic"), then took to task some prominent "Leave" pioneers' remarks that June 23 should now be known as Britain's "independence day." "The sequel to the movie they're quoting actually opened this week and features the wholesale destruction of London, which is beginning to feel pretty f---ing appropriate right now," Oliver noted.

He added that the resignation of PM David Cameron "should make me happy, but … it's like catching an ice cream cone out of the air because a child was hit by a car." But it was British citizens who hadn't done their homework and were experiencing "Regrexit" that he reserved the most ire for—and who should serve as an example for the US. "You might think, well, that is not going to happen to us in America—we're not going to listen to some ridiculously haired buffoon peddling lies and nativism in the hopes of riding a protest vote into power," he said. "Well, let Britain tell you, it can happen, and when it does, there are no f---ing do-overs." (Other strong Brexit reactions here.)
