A week after John Oliver bought television commercials during Donald Trump's favorite shows to try and educate him, the HBO comedian is back with a song to warn Trump about the dangers of Vladimir Putin.
Trump has repeatedly claimed it would “be nice if we got along with Russia," but Oliver points out, “It would be also be nice if you could walk right up to a bear and hug it.”

Noting that in Putin's Russia, there is a popular pop song lauding the many admirable traits of Russia's leader, Oliver decided to create his own song in the hopes of warning President Trump from getting too close to Putin without knowing the risks.
