Like most who watched last week’s final presidential debate, the Last Week Tonight host was particularly horrified when the GOP candidate refused to state whether he would concede to the results of the election
when if he loses.
The political commentator noted the point in the debate where Hillary Clinton mentioned how the Donald even said the Emmys were rigged because he failed to win any awards hosting The Apprentice — similar to his latest campaign strategy of insisting that the entire election is rigged.
Trump was still clearly salty about his Emmy snub that night, as his response on the debate stage was a bitter “I should have gotten it.”
Since Oliver (and America) knows all too well by this point that Trump is “medically incapable of accepting that he is a loser,” the HBO host had a proposition for the business mogul that would allow him to claim he won something!
Grabbing the Emmy award he won last month for Best Variety Talk Series, Oliver made a bet with the candidate so he won’t have to walk away empty handed. He said:
“Let’s bet on the outcome of this election. I will take the side that you win. I will take the side that you win. You will take the side that you lose. That way, if you lose, you still win and, as for the stakes in the bet, I have something that I know you want!”
If The Donald is half the businessman he says he is, he should jump at this golden opportunity… we mean, that is one top-notch consolation prize!
