John Oliver approved.
While many celebrities continue to come out and voice who they’ll be supporting in the 2016 presidential election, Oliver decided to put out his own endorsements. However, they weren’t for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.
In a web exclusive, Oliver talked about celebrities who support Clinton — like Oprah and Stevie Wonder — while making jokes about Trump getting support from Stephen Baldwin. The HBO host said he didn’t feel qualified to back a candidate
“Because of my accent, the only elected officials I can endorse are prime ministers, viceroys and magical railway controllers,” Oliver said.
However, he did have some recommendations for things outside of politics.

Oliver started off with animals wearing people clothes, which he described as “charming and a wholesome delight, unlike people wearing animal clothes.”
Sticking with the idea of animals, Oliver put his stamp of approval on interspecies friendships. He showed a picture of a dog and a goat being “BFFs,” followed by a photo of actress Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston — “a human from Earth.”
The last endorsement Oliver dished out went to the 1999 film “Pushing Tin” starring John Cusack and Billy Bob Thornton. The film is about two competing air traffic controllers, which Oliver believes is the perfect nap movie.
“If you are looking for a snooze in the middle of an overcast Sunday afternoon, ‘Pushing Tin’ will knock you the f— out,” Oliver joked.
