John Oliver skewers Baltimore Mayor Pugh's Healthy Holly scandal on 'Last Week Tonight'

British comedian John Oliver skewered Mayor Catherine Pugh over the scandal surrounding her self-published Healthy Holly books, and he joined the ranks of people calling for her resignation during a segment of his HBO show Sunday night.

On "Last Week Tonight," Oliver slammed Pugh for the book deal that prompted her to take a leave of absence, and he told viewers she shouldn’t return to office.

“Baltimore has a long history of corruption, but its latest scandal is truly remarkable,” Oliver said before launching into a brief history of Healthy Holly.
