John Oliver is buying 'O'Reilly Factor' ads to 'educate' Trump about sexual harassment


John Oliver has managed to make buying TV ad time a comic stunt. Again.

The host of "Last Week Tonight" has bought ads on cable news to teach President Trump about basic political concepts after news broke that the president watched a lot of news.

Now, as advertisers flee Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor" in the wake of a sex scandal surrounding its host, Oliver revealed in his most recent episode that the show bought Fox News ad time to teach Trump about sexual harassment.

Trump has defended Bill O'Reilly, saying "I don't think Bill would do anything wrong" after a New York Times story said he and his employer had settled five harassment lawsuits for a total of $13 million.
