John Oliver takes aim at Putin and Russia in Last Week Tonight

Having gone in last week on Trump and America, Oliver re-aims to the other big political power in the news this week.

Correctly bringing up the fact that Trump seems to enjoy the company of Putin more than with America's own sweetheart Meryl Streep, so he goes in to find out why the President is so intent on getting along with the big red superpower.

Did you know, for example, that Putin has his own pop song? Or that he might have a personal wealth of apparently $85 billion, making him one of the richest men in the world? Or that radio-controlled flying dildos were used to distract a political adversary during a speech?

It'd almost be hilarious, if it weren't terrifyingly real.
