The 'Last Week Tonight' host says the "terrorist dipshit" is vastly outnumbered.

John Oliver took time at the beginning of Sunday's Last Week Tonight to address the mass shooting that took place earlier that day at a gay nightclub in Orlando.

"Right now this just hurts," he said. "The worst thing is the pain is so familiar." He spoke about the attacks at Charlie Hebdo targeting culture in Paris and said that similarly, the Orlando shooting targeted a place that symbolized the culture of America.

"For the record, I will happily embrace Latin night at a gay club in the theme park capital of the world as the ultimate symbol of what is truly wonderful about America," he added.

Oliver said he would continue his show as usual, but first he highlighted a video of hundreds of people in Florida lining up and waiting to donate blood. "It kind of reminds you that that terrorist dipshit is vastly outnumbered," he said.
