John Oliver is making a great case for sainthood on top of being one of the funniest and smartest people on television.
His latest miracle involves showing how easy it is to start a company that buys personal debt by starting a debt buying company of his very own. Of course, Oliver opted for another choice. Instead of coming around to collect on his second hand debt, Oliver decided to forgive the entirety of the debt he just bought. That totals in $15 million of debt, even though the debt is bought at a fraction of a cent on the dollar. Oprah’s famous car giveaway doesn’t total that much as you’ll find in this week’s deep dive segment.
On Last Week Tonight last night, he delightfully forgave in grandiose fashion.
