John Oliver to Trump: ‘Drop Out’ Now and ‘You Would Be a Legend’ [VIDEO]

The host apologized for talking about the GOP candidate so much recently, but after a week that saw Trump continue to drop in the polls, lose his campaign chair Paul Manafort, and begin to take advice from “sexually rapacious hard-boiled egg” Roger Ailes, he predicted this might represent a “fork in the road” for his campaign. “He’s either hitting bottom, from which he’ll rebound to victory, or it’s the beginning of the end.”
As Oliver sees it, Trump has two options. The first would be a “humiliating” and “off-brand” loss to Hillary Clinton, and the second would be a complete “reset” that allows him to turn things around and win. So with that in mind, Oliver spoke directly to Trump for the rest of his episode.
“It seems that you have two really bad options here,” Oliver told Trump. “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 the presidential campaign should actually be.” And at the end of all that, he said, Trump will either win or lose, both of which will most likely leave him “miserable.”
Oliver then presented Trump with a third option: “Drop out.”
