Comedian Tells Trump To Drop Out, Call Campaign A ‘Satire’

Donald Trump should end his presidential campaign and claim it was just a joke, John Oliver suggested Sunday on “Last Week Tonight” on HBO.

Newsmax reported that the comedian advised the Republican nominee to tell voters his White House bid was a “satire designed to expose the flaws in the system.” Oliver argued that Trump has reached a “fork in the road,” with his falling poll numbers threatening to harm the real-estate tycoon’s business empire.

“If you keep going, you’re going to spend the next 11 weeks ramping up hatred in speeches, injecting poison into the American bloodstream that will take generations to remove, and denying the country the contest of ideas that a presidential campaign should actually be; and after that, you’re either going to win or you’re going to lose, and I think both of those scenarios end pretty badly for you,” said the British talk-show host, who became famous as a correspondent on Jon Stewart’s former “Daily Show” on Comedy Central.

Oliver continued: “I would like to propose to you a third option. That is, drop out. Simply drop out, and tell America this entire candidacy was a stunt.”

The comedian’s comments come at time when some Republican activists and political pundits are calling on Trump to end his candidacy, possibly allowing vice-presidential running mate Mike Pence to become the nominee. Ongoing controversies about Trump’s incendiary rhetoric, extreme policy proposal and campaign-staff shakeups are dogging the campaign.
