Last Week Tonight host John Oliver has a proposition for Donald Trump. Oliver wants Trump to bet on the outcome of the US presidential election and even offered to take the Republican Party nominee’s side.
“…Let’s bet on the outcome of this election. I will take the side that you win. You take the side that you lose. That way, if you lose, you still win. As for the stakes of the bet, I have something I know that you want,” says Oliver.
Oliver increased the stakes by offering Trump his Emmy award, which he has won five times, as The Apprentice reality star complained in the past that the award ceremony was rigged against him.
During the last and third presidential debate, Hillary Clinton raked up Trump’s tweets on the Emmy awards and drew parallels to his claims that the election was also rigged. Oliver proffered his own theory on why Trump so badly wants an Emmy. “Of course he wants an Emmy. It’s a woman, it’s gold, and it’s proportionate to his tiny hands. It’s basically Trump’s ideal mate,” Oliver said.
We feel that Trump should take the bet as it’s highly likely that he would lose to Hillary in the election, with polls indicating a five-point lead for the Democratic Party nominee.
