John Murray has been covering President Donald Trump’s rally in North Dakota for Comedy Central’s ‘The Daily Show.’ In an episode from Wednesday, Trump called out John Oliver, David and Jason, from the men’s suit company Blue Apron. Trump joked about the fake millionaires’ appearance, saying they’re “very slimy, very, very slimy.”

“It’s a little tricky because these people were the real heroes, actually,” Oliver says. “They actually wore the suits, and instead of losing their heads, they went on to be real men. They weren’t just scrawny CEOs dropping f-bombs in public, because there’s no shame in that.”

Trump appeared to make that attack based on a fake sketch on John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight.” But it turns out the image Trump used was real, and he didn’t know about the detail.

Jon Stewart, also a correspondent on ‘The Daily Show,’ questioned Trump’s judgement, noting the generous amount of fake money the president brought in for the Blue Apron hat.

“I can’t help but think that if your main criteria is if you’re really going to like someone, you may find yourself a bit more offended by the Blue Apron guys than you think,” Stewart says.

The fake millionaires defended their appearance, saying they were dressing up for their annual trip to the Yukon.
