    Warning: Video contains explicit language.

    Comedian John Oliver is no fan of the National Rifle Association, and he used his “Last Week Tonight” show to take on the organization.

    Instead of focusing on the NRA’s standard activities, though, Oliver took aim at NRATV, a television service available through such streaming services as Apple TV, Chromecast, and Amazon Fire TV.

    Oliver asked: “What the [expletive] is that?”

    He spotlighted a couple of the network’s shows, including those hosted by spokeswoman Dana Loesch and one called “Love at First Shot.”
