On Sunday's Last Week Tonight, host John Oliver devoted his main segment to a problem that, while not exactly sexy, has the very real possibility of causing some scary s--t if not fixed soon: America's crumbling infrastructure.

Exhibit A on Oliver's list of problematic judges is Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, who Oliver says is living up to his state slogan "Alabama: Boldly refusing to accept diversity and the inevitable since 1819" with his continued efforts to try and stop gay marriage.
