John Oliver explains why 'Dangerous' Trump is much worse than Hillary Clinton

Trump vs Clinton is about to get very, very messy.

On Monday 26 September, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will take to the stage of Hofstra University, New York, to participate in the first presidential debate of the 2016 campaign. Audience figures are expected to climb toward the 100 million mark. Why? Because even now, with less than two months before the US heads to the polling stations, no one is sure who to trust. 

In his latest bang-on-the-money video, John Oliver wades through the muck and mire of both candidates' catalogue of 'scandals', attempting to work out who is worthy of public trust - and there's only one clear winner.

"If you believe the internet, [Hillary Clinton] is guilty of everything," explains the Last Week Tonight host, before delving into some of the internet's best (worst?) examples of her crooked behaviour: 'Killary Clinton'. 'Hillary ordered the murder of the children of Waco'. 'Hillary the butcher of Benghazi'. 'Is Hillary Clinton Satan? Hillary: I am the devil'. "That's in quotes on the internet, so she must have said it..."

Those scandals attributed to Hillary (Whitewater, Benghazi, the Swiss file transfer - which you're going to want to read up on) have all been investigated. Thoroughly. Such is the obsession with Hillary's 'scandal' record, that Oliver fears the US electorate hasn't been asking the same questions of Trump. And when you start asking, the answer as to who to vote for on 8 November becomes starkly clear...
