In Latest Verbal Sparring by Donald Trump, He Takes on a Late-Night Host — and He May Have Met His Match

Nov 2, 2015  •  Post A Comment

Donald Trump has a new target for his often entertaining verbal jabs — late-night host John Oliver. E! Online reports that the GOP presidential hopeful and the host of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” had an exchange via social media over the weekend, and it appears Oliver may have got in the last word — for now.

It started when Trump sent a tweet Saturday evening to the political publication The Hill indicating that Trump had been invited to appear on Oliver’s show and had turned down the invitation. Trump 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 responded Sunday morning with his own tweet, writing: “A couple of points… 1. Yes, we have a boring show. 2. At no point did we invite Donald Trump to appear on it.”

E! notes that the Trump camp had not responded yet to Oliver’s tweet. The report also notes that Trump continues to raise eyebrows with some of his comments.

“In addition to this ‘Last Week’ hiccup, while speaking at a rally in New Hampshire, the business mogul also alleged that women who opt to wear burkas in the Middle East have it easier because they don’t need to wear makeup,” the publication reports.

Trump is scheduled to host the upcoming Nov. 7 installment of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”

last week tonight with john oliver



  1. Hey John Oliver – are you aware of the little-known doc “You’ve Been Trumped” (2011) from Montrose Pictures? You will find it listed and described on IMDb and the DVD is available online. The trailer comes as an extra on the DVD. Showing excerpts from the trailer (or “fair use” clips from the film) on your awesome show would expose Trump’s disastrous Scotland Golf Course travesty and be a great service to the nation. I have no stake in this prospect other than to see Trump implode and go away. Forevermore.

  2. I am so sick of the political agenda, outdated, immoral, way outdated, that needs a proven commodity in Donald Trump. I read his book back in grad school on-the art of the deal, and you don’t hear about it much but he turned around a city project that took forever and finished in no time. What I learned in graduate school teaches me the les government the better ,especially bureaucracy, which has put us in this horrible institutional type government that has robbed us of our freedoms but worse let others. We could be the strongest Country in the world, and should be. We need Douglas McCarthy – George Patton and believe it or not Petraeus ,however he sold out in my opinion. Government is meant to serve the people . Hillary Clinton is a product of the old stanfard establishment .She and no Bahma need to go. Can you imagine Donald Trump with his brashness and a set of balls -sorry for the words,-however will solve this very quickly it is called forget political correctness get the job done we are letting people in this country become soft and weak. We are the greatest country and Donald Trump will bring us back to where we were through negotiation . There is so much to be collective agreed that he possesses to to where the world remembers someone from the outside that has the aspect of winning ,not dealing with politics and has accumulated wealth there’s a reason for it he’s intelligent he’s smart he’s a great negotiator and he will kick some ass we won’t even hear of Isys one session of office within six months. Some of this may sound harsh however it’s true Donald Trump will return this country to where it should be because the man is well schooled in complicity, determination and above all to accomplish the greatest thing he can -to save this country and we need him. We do not need the same old rhetoric. ” Noboma “I believe is secretly a Moslem or sympathizer at the cost of his own people ,it is time for a change and I want to see Donald Trump show the world of our true determination devotion with the Chinese and all these other countries and bring us back to greatness and he will tell the world this whole political system we have lead forever there are no PACto consider Any decision making for the safety of this country will not get lost in Congress it is time for extreme measures my friends I beg you to vote for Donald Trump in making us great again Please don’t continue to be part of the establishment -it is broken and needs to be fixed by someone that doesn’t need the money ,doesn’t need the power ,just wants to turn this country around everyone listen . One last thing : sure he had an ego but not at the expense of others., Donald you can do it let’s win and take back with country .
