How Is Columbus Day Still A Thing?

Watch Last Week Tonight with John Oliver "funny" take on Columbus Day.

Today is Columbus Day 2014 in America. We already reported about the controversy around this federal holiday. Our take is to cancel it.

The HBO show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver has some other ideas. They propose Frank Sinatra Day for instance. Watch the funny, but as always informative, Columbus Day - How is that still a thing video that has been just released below. It tells you all what is wrong with Columbus Day in 2 minutes and 40 seconds. The video is accompanied with the message: "Christopher Columbus did a lot of stuff that was way more terrible than "sailing the ocean blue," but we don't learn about that."

The Canadian's are much smarter. They already celebrate Thanksgiving Day today.
