On John Oliver’s new show on HBO, “Last Week Tonight,” Oliver covers the Eurovision Song Contest and the latest from Crimea.
On the Eurovision front, gay drag queen Conchita Wurst won the international competition, much to the consternation of the Russians and their former satellites.
On the Crimean front, Russian President Putin staged a photo opp in the occupied and annexed territory yesterday, while announcing the creation of a two-pound commemorative coin with Putin’s own face on it.
