John Oliver: America Is a Useless Nuclear Weapon 'Hoarder' and Nobody Cares
Utter indifference to the fact that the United States has in its (extremely haphazard) control enough warheads to destroy humanity is the reason we’ll spend $355 billion over the next decade to maintain our nukes. And if you’re thinking, “Oh well, at least they’re in good hands,” the “Last Week Tonight” host will make you think again by providing recent examples of the inept hands watching over these missiles.
By the way, we’ve almost accidentally caused an apocalypse at least a couple of times. As John Oliver points out, it’s not Iran or North Korea we have to worry about; it’s America.
