Make Donald Drumpf Again!
It's about time John Oliver talks about Drumpf.

When you talk about a “dog-and-pony show” nothing comes close to Barnum & Bailey Circus… other than the current US presidential race. And clearly, the show’s brightest star (and by star, we mean, huge ball of gas) is Donald Trump.
Trump has been leading the Republican primaries and despite his experience in politics there is something about him that struck a minor chord with his voters. Trump’s many pronouncements hold no weight on closer scrutiny; his rhetoric can be xenophobic, ignorant, at best, and his chest-thumping… O Lordy, if ego could be turned into energy, the man can power several small nations for years to come. Trump resembles a bully rather than a Leader of the Free World and the idea that the man named Trump can add “President of the United States” to his already-inflated CV is now a damning possibility.
Leave it to comedian John Oliver to poke more holes—big ones—in Trump’s platform. Watch how Oliver challenges the image of Trump (“A litigious serial liar with a string of broken business ventures and the support of a former Klan leader who he can’t decide whether or not to condemn.”) before leaving us with this gem: that sometimes the only way to strip someone of power is to remove his name entirely.
