John Oliver Reacts To Orlando Massacre: “This Just Hurts”

As he has done following previous terrorist attacks, Oliver opened the Sunday show, airing only hours after the shooting, with brief emotional remarks about the murders.

“It’s still early and details are still emerging and right now this just hurts,” he said. “And the worst thing is, this pain is so familiar. In Paris last November, terrorists seemed to target places that symbolize everything that is wonderful about France — culture, music, restaurants. And in Orlando early this morning a gunman attacked a Latin night at a gay club in the theme park capital of the world. And for the record, I will happily embrace a 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.”
