John Oliver Plays His Drumpf Card

On Sunday's episode of "Last Week Tonight," John Oliver finally went after Donald Trump.

The British late night host has long refused to give Trump the attention he craves, but with Trump's path to the Republican nomination becoming increasingly, scarily clear, Oliver decided to throw down the gauntlet.

The evening's best moment came when Oliver revealed that, according to a biography of the Trump family, an ancestor had changed the family name to Trump from Drumpf - a name that, as Oliver says, resembles "the sound produced when a morbidly obese pigeon flies into the window of a foreclosed Old Navy".

The show concluded with a plea for Americans to #MakeDonaldDrumpfAgain. If you need help, check out this website, where you can get your very own "Make Donald Drumpf Again" hat and a Google Chrome extension that changes every mention of Trump to Drumpf.

Naturally, the Twitterverse had lots to say about Donald's Drumpfing:

John Sinclair is one of the lesser-known people in cannabis culture, but he’s a very important figure, particularly for anti-prohibition activists. Sinclair is a native of Flint, Michigan, far from the hippie epicenters in California or the Warhol scene of the Big Apple. The scene in Michigan was grittier and more blue collar.
