John Oliver mocks the royal wedding and media coverage of it

On Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Oliver took aim at the royal wedding and the exhaustive media coverage of it. Oliver focused on Gayle King of CBS This Morning and her many tangents, including one about a memorable moment from the last royal wedding, of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Pippa [Middleton] got a lot of attention because everyone was raving about her bottom, and I thought, ’Is that a big bottom? I don’t think so.’ She got a lot of attention for her bottom that people thought was perfection,” King said. “Guess that’s a matter of opinion. I’ve seen some big bottoms. I didn’t think that was one, but OK.”

Oliver couldn’t have agreed more with King, saying, “That’s fair. We British people are not exactly known for our taste in butts. The actual Sir Mix-a-Lot was a 16th-century nobleman, so inbred that when a girl walked in with an itty-bitty waist and a round thing in his face, he just sneezed out of his elbow and died.”

Oliver also had an opinion about Bishop Michael Curry’s impassioned sermon about love, saying that was the wrong room because the royal family has been so repressed. In fact Oliver made an analogy that only he could make. “Talking to the queen about love is like talking to her about the transformative power of the Taco Bell $5 Chalupa Cravings Box,” he said.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver airs Sundays at 11 p.m. on HBO.
