John Oliver Gives Trump Opportunity To Drop Out Of Race

It's an offer he might not want to refuse.

On last night's HBO "Last Week Tonight," John Oliver noted that Donald Trump has two bad alternatives facing him in the future. One, he loses the Presidential race to Hillary Clinton, which he has admitted at a rally would be embarrassing, or two, he wins and has to actually be President of the United States.

John Oliver offers a third alternative: come on "Last Week Tonight" and read the resignation speech from "The Kid who Ran for President," a tween novel by Dan Gutman.

They even create a stage setting for Donald's speech, and may I say I love a show with an HBO set budget.
