John Oliver is priceless in this episode of Last Week Tonight where he talks about America's income inequality, wealth concentration amongst the elites and the racial discrepancy in wealth distribution. US President Barack Obama famously identified income inequality as the defining challenge facing his country at the end of 2013, but quickly backtracked on the assertion, after Democrats appeared to be split on the issue. Needless to say, Obama’s spineless response to the pressure from within his own party and to pressure from the media, has provided Oliver with plenty of comic material about the unalterable status quo in America.
