What, another Donald Trump-related feud??
Yes, indeed! And this one is coming courtesy of whip-smart Last Week Tonight host John Oliver!
It all started when the HBO host told reporters asking about the GOP frontrunner that he didn’t care about Trump and didn’t want the presidential candidate on his show.
Of course, Trump took offense to that. He tweeted:
.@thehill John Oliver had his people call to ask me to be on his very boring and low rated show. I said “NO THANKS” Waste of time & energy!

Oliver and co. responded to the claim in typically funny fashion on Facebook, writing:
Claiming that he has been repeatedly invited to be on the show, The Donald got even more angry.
The real estate tycoon went even further in an interview Monday afternoon with Colin Cowherd on his FOX Sports radio show, saying:
“[I] hardly even knows who [John Oliver] is, I don’t even know what he looks like. I say, ├óΓé¼╦£Hey, look, you asked me to be on the show, I said no.’ Then he goes out and he goes, ├óΓé¼╦£I wouldn’t want him on the show.’ Well, that’s just a lie.”
Trump, who must be unaware that Oliver almost certainly didn’t ask him to be on Last Week Tonight, considering that show doesn’t really have a format for guests, continued:
“I don’t like to let things die.”
Yeah, no kidding.
So for now, a bizarre feud between The Donald and John Oliver simmers. And the only thing that’s about to die, of course, will be his presidential campaign… but all good things come to those who wait, we suppose! LOLz!!
