Peduto, Wagner Featured On Last Week Tonight

LWTIn his show Sunday night, John Oliver spent 20 minutes talking about President Trump’s decision to pull the United States out of the Paris Agreement.  During the segment, Oliver called out Pittsburgh Mayor for his response to the decision, and state Senator Scott Wagner (R-York) for comments he made about climate change during a radio interview.  

“Pittsburgh is the poster child of showing why the Paris Agreement is good economics for the United States and what we did today sets us back decades,” Peduto said in the clip the show used.  

Oliver used Peduto to highlight what he views as the best response to the decision by the Trump administration, then quickly turned to Wagner, using a clip of him from a WHYY interview discussing global warming.  

“The earth moves closer to the sun every year.  We have more people. You know, humans have warm bodies. So is heat coming off? Things are changing, but I think we are, as a society, doing the best we can,” Wagner says in the clip.  

You can view the entire clip below:

Wagner, who is running for Governor, took the clip in good humor, releasing a Facebook video thanking Oliver for including him in his broadcast.

“John, listen, I just want to thank you for putting my oicture and my name on national TV.  John, I’d love to go on your show sometime, you and I could have a lot of fun,” Wagner says in the video.

  1. I learned something from Senator Wagner that the Earth moves closer to the sun every year. How was that missed?

  2. You forget to write an article on Democratic State Committeeman Cole Goodman being featured on To Catch a Predator.

  3. Wagner should go on John Oliver’s show, and Neil deDrasse Tyson should show up and beat Wagner over the head with a telescope or science book.

    1. He should be careful or he might get his telescope stolen. I mean, confiscated.

    2. deGrasse Tyson should stick to astrology. He’s beclowining himself through this recent venture into political science.

    3. He’d better watch out. Wagner would body-slam him and whack him with his own telescope.
