Why does John Oliver hate America? HBO funnyman reveals his true colors | SIDELINE

We've taken John Oliver in, dragging him across the pond from his native England and thus saving him from a life of gray skies and singing chimney sweeps.

We've laughed at his jokes on The Daily Show, and now we've given him his own show on HBO – which you should absolutely watch, because it's blindingly funny. We've nodded as he's eviscerated FIFA, winced as he's called the news media to task, and cringed countless times as he deconstructed the hypocrisy of our politicians.

And this is how he repays us?

Oliver went on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday to give his take on a number of things. Most pointedly? US chances at the World Cup.

"I would prepare yourselves for winning zero out of three games," Oliver said.

"[The US] is going to be humiliated," Oliver said.

We have to admit, we're feeling a little bit betrayed. Especially since, as an England and Liverpool fan, Oliver knows what true humiliation feels like.

What do we mean by that?

Here's Liverpool:

And here's England:

Enjoy the World Cup, John. In the words of another Daily Show alum – one who truly loves America – you're on notice.
