A rare factual error in Last Week Tonight with John Oliver that, amazingly, is related to Microsoft Word.

In an item about The White House Calligrapher, Oliver said the job was easy because there’s already a font with the job title in Microsoft Word.  And he shows a Word for Mac font list with a Calligrapher font in it.
