John Oliver Apologizes for His Comments on the Election

John Oliver has been one of the most outspoken voices against Donald Trump this election, but he admitted he made a big mistake in the past about the presidential candidate.

“It is frankly hard to believe that there was a time when people thought that a Trump candidacy would be funny,” Oliver said Sunday during the opening of his HBO show “Last Week Tonight.” “But there was such a time.”

Oliver then showed a clip of him guest-hosting “The Daily Show” from three years ago that had the comedian comment on reports that Trump was considering a run in 2016.

And, well, the clip showed that Oliver actually egged on Trump to run.
