John Oliver is downright frustrated.

There’s lots he’d like to talk about on HBO’s “Last Week Tonight,” but he was forced to once again discuss the election after FBI Director James Comey wrote a letter to Congress about a new line of inquiry into Hillary Clinton’s emails. 

“If this shitty development in a shitty campaign season were not grim enough, there is also the matter of where this latest problem came from,” Oliver said. 

That would be former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner.   

“It seems Anthony Weiner is forcing the nation to re-litigate the entire email controversy and putting Hillary Clinton’s chances of winning the presidency in serious danger,” Oliver said. “Carlos Danger!”

Oliver then broke out the “Carlos Danger” dance he used to do back in his “Daily Show” days:

Oliver described the FBI’s announcement as the equivalent of a mystery box.

“And like the box from the end of ‘Seven,’ it could contain anything from nothing to Gwyneth Paltrow’s head,” he said. “Although it almost definitely contains Anthony Weiner’s penis.” 

Oliver thought we had reached beyond rock bottom when Donald Trump falsely accused former Miss Universe Alicia Machado of having a sex tape. But now we’re way beyond even that, he said. 

“We have burrowed through not just rock bottom, but through the core of the earth, and we’ve come bursting out the other side, startling kangaroos, and we’re currently hurtling toward outer space where there is no up, down, light, or darkness ― just an endless void in which death comes as sweet, sweet relief. Please let this thing be over soon!”
