John Oliver and Stephen Colbert roast two of history’s most underwhelming presidents


You don’t hear much about Warren G. Harding and Zachary Taylor, which makes sense. Harding died after two years in office and subsequently had his legacy demolished by scandals.

So, okay, they weren’t good presidents. But that just means they’re amazing candidates for a roast in the year 2017, courtesy of John Oliver and Stephen Colbert.

Please enjoy, and bask in the relief of forgetting our current president for just over six minutes. Bonus: creepy wax figures! Read more…
