John Oliver Just Completely Destroyed Donald Trump's Campaign


On Sunday, John Oliver absolutely eviscerated Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, aptly summing up his campaign with this perfect metaphor,

Oliver said he understands why Trump might be appealing to people because there's a small (but unflattering) part of all of us that enjoys watching him make the political establishment squirm.

But when you really start taking a closer look at Trump, Oliver stated, you see what an empty yet dangerous candidate he really is.

A lot of people like Trump because he purportedly "tells it like it is," but as Oliver notes, the website PolitiFact (a Pulitzer Prize-winning fact-checker) checked 77 of Trump's statements and rated 76 percent of them false. In other words, Trump is completely full of sh*t.

Oliver went on to dismantle Trump's claims about how he's financing his campaign and highlighted how ridiculous it is he claims to be "tough," given he flips out anytime someone says something negative about him and threatens to sue them (but doesn't follow through).

Trump is easily the most sensitive presidential candidate in recent memory. And if you can't face criticism without throwing a temper tantrum like a child whose parent won't buy him or her candy, you aren't suited to be president.

Oliver also destroyed Trump's claim he's a strong candidate because of he's "successful,"

Still, if all of this is true, why is Trump currently the Republican frontrunner, and why has he been so dominate throughout this race?

Oliver broke it down, and explained why it's so disconcerting,

Indeed, it's extremely troubling.

What's more, over the weekend, Trump was even unwilling to unequivocally condemn David Duke -- a former KKK leader who recently endorsed him.

During an interview with CNN, Trump claimed he didn't "know anything" about David Duke, despite ample evidence to the contrary.

Touching on this subject, Oliver ripped Trump to shreds,

As a nation, do we really want to take a gamble on an individual who flip-flops on whether to condemn a man associated with one of the most infamous hate groups in US history?

Donald Trump might be entertaining, and his name might be associated with success, but as it turns out, "Trump" might not even be his family's real name. There's evidence his ancestral name is actually "Drumpf," which an ancestor changed at some point in the past.

Simply put, Trump's brand, much like his campaign, has been carefully manicured to drastically obscure the truth, and we should not be fooled.

As Oliver put it,

It's a fair question, and it's why Oliver is asking America "to make Donald Drumpf again," and has launched a campaign via #MakeDonaldDrumpfAgain and the website to do so. Join the movement.
