  • John Oliver is not a doctor, but he played one on his program Sunday night.
  • In a new episode of “Last Week Tonight,” the talk show host made a slew of false and misleading claims about “gender-affirming” care and the adolescents seeking it.
  • In a recent article published in City Journal, Leor Sapir, a fellow at the Manhattan Institute, rebutted each claim Oliver made, beginning with Oliver’s insistence on shoe-horning transgender-related issues under the umbrella of “LGBTQ rights.”
