Donald Trump has boosted ratings while making the late-night rounds
After Trump, 69, tweeted that he declined an offer to stop by Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, the show shot back that the Republican presidential hopeful was never asked to appear.
“John Oliver had his people call to ask me to be on his very boring and low rated show,” he posted Saturday night. “I said ‘NO THANKS’ Waste of time & energy!”
Oliver, 38, retweeted Last Week Tonight‘s response Sunday, admitting, “Yes, we have a boring show,” but insisting, “At no point did we invite Donald Trump to appear on it.”
The bombastic billionaire will be on TV this Saturday, when he hosts Saturday Night Live.
Last Week Tonight airs Sunday at 11 p.m. ET on HBO.
