John Oliver Skewers Ryan Lochte, "the Purest form of the Chemical Element, Bro"

Ryan Lochte's Rio fallout continues this week. Speedo dropped him today citing "behavior that is counter to the values of this brand"; his other sponsors, Ralph Lauren and mattress maker Airweave, are said to be "monitoring the situation"; and John Oliver, host of Last Week Tonight, spent three devastating — and entertaining — minutes skewering the athlete on HBO.

Oliver says that people are right to be angry at what he calls, "the international saga of Ryan Lochte, a swimmer who looks like he's about to play the John Slattery role in a porn parody of Mad Men." 

Oliver pointed that the scandal was an unnecessary, avoidable distraction to the last week of the Summer Olympic Games, one that the swimmer has shown a lack of remorse over. "While his teammates were detained by authorities, Lochte, the purest form of the chemical element 'bro' was already back in America offering a bullshit apology. "

The segment ends with a sizzle reel of moronic quotes from Lochte, what Oliver calls a farewell to the "sweet dumb merman... one of America's favorite idiots."
