Military Translators, Supreme Court

This week's topics include Putin's impressive trip to Milan, a McDonald's Q&A board promising to answer all questions truthfully and the bureaucratic roadblocks preventing local nationals who translate for coalition forces from obtaining U.S. immigrant visas. This segment includes an in-studio interview with Mohammad, a translator whose attempts to obtain a visa took three years, and lost family members to the Taliban during that time. The last segment tries to solve the problem of boring news coverage of Supreme Court sessions (because the court does not allow video). Last Week Tonight shows how the coverage can be made more compelling by using animals staged as the Justices and other court employees. The show then thoughtfully provides ten minutes of raw footage for news outlets to use to create their own Supreme Court reenactments.
