It’s been a while since John Oliver has made fun of Arizona, but the unintentional comedy fodder of the Republican primary in the state’s U.S. Senate race provides finally proved too much.
Oliver devoted his first segment on “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” on HBO Sunday to the contest pitting Mark Brnovich, Jim Lamon and Blake Masters, among others, against each other.
It was pretty funny, if you could get past the fact that one of them might be a future U.S. Senator.
Arizona is represented by two Democrats, Oliver pointed out: Kyrsten Sinema — “the only senator who seems to buy all her clothes exclusively from girl-boss pyramid schemes” — and Mark Kelly, who is running for reelection this year. Sinema is up for reelection in 2024.
Who is running for U.S. Senate? These are the major candidates in the race
Oliver started by making fun of Mark Brnovich’s nunchuck videos.
