“You’re either going to win or you’re going to lose, and I think both those scenarios end pretty badly for you,” Oliver told the GOP presidential nominee on his HBO series Sunday. “I would like to propose to you a third option and that is, drop out. Simply drop out and tell America this entire candidacy was a stunt.”

The "Last Week Tonight” host made the case to Trump that he could claim his entire candidacy was merely a satire "designed to expose the flaws in the system.”

"Just think about how triumphant it would feel to say on national television: 'I openly ran on a platform of impossibly ignorant proposals steeped in racial bigotry, and nobody stopped me. In fact, you embraced me for it! What the f--- was that about?’” said Oliver. "That would be one of the most powerful political speeches of all time.”

"You would not be a loser,” Oliver insisted. "You would be a legend."
