FUNNIEST SEGMENT I HAVE EVER SEEN. WATCH IT AND ENJOY!!!
Donald Trump’s original family name — Drumpf — isn’t news. @RealDonalDrumpf has been tweeting since May 2013. But John Oliver made big hay of it Sunday.
On his HBO show “Last Week Tonight,” the British comedian took Trump apart for 22 minutes.

falling off the shelf of a mini-mart.”
Social media named Oliver their favorite political commentator.
