Opening Remarks
August 10, 2016  | By Eric Gould
 
John Oliver of Last Week Tonight ran down the Opening Ceremonies of the Summer Olympics in Rio recently, highlighting the spectacular “plant-gasm” finale of the Brazilian rain forest tribute segment, and the Tongan contingent of the Parade of Nations.
