Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Donald Trump (HBO) - YouTube 2016-02-29 17-38-02

In case you missed it, John Oliver took 20 minutes on Last Week Tonight to roast Donald Trump, finishing the skewering with mentioning that one of Trump’s ancestors actually changed the family name from “Drumpf”. Tying this in with his opinion that “Trump” is little more than a brand (and that it’s that brand that has given him this much success thus far), Oliver says that we have to decouple the man from the name so that we can see Donald for who he really is.

It’s a plugin allowing you to replace all instances of the word “Trump” with “Drumpf” in your browser. But if you haven’t yet watched the Oliver clip, you probably don’t understand this quite yet.

Basically, Oliver concludes in his sketch that the name “Trump” is simply synonymous with wealth, success, boldness, and prosperity, despite the evidence that Donald Trump actually has very little of these values. His argument is that if Trump had the last name of his ancestors, he wouldn’t be doing nearly as well in the polls.
