As part of a segment on how seedy the debt buying industry is, John Oliver set up a debt buying company for about $50 online.  He used the new company, called C.A.R.P., to buy $15 million of medical debt for the price of about $60,000.

Forgiving this debt is the largest one-time giveaway on television. Even outranking Oprah.

It's no surprise that our reality-TV gameshow host-in-chief lies constantly. He lives in a reality distrotion field that would make Steve Jobs jealous. It'd be amazing, really, if weren't so dangerous for literally every single person on planet Earth. So John Oliver really, really wants to burst that bubble, and he's putting the truth where Trump can see it. 

We all know that Trump likes to watch cable news. He makes it a habit of tweeting about it and even calling in to them as these shows are airing. So Last Week Tonight is running a series of commercial featuring a cowboy that switches from talking about catheters to the nuclear triad in a way that even he can understand. So while Trump is eating his morning taco bowl, let's hope he gets some medicine with his sugar.

John Oliver has concluded that, rather than his 'straight talk', business acumen or blatant racism, Donald Trump's success is based mainly on his 'branding'. The association of success with the name Trump has been carefully cultivated. According to one historian, Donald's family name used to be 'Drumpf' which sounds much less prestigious. That's why Oliver wants to #MakeDonaldDrumpfAgain.

There's even a website where you can buy a neat hat! And, as with almost everything worth doing, there's also a Chrome extension for it, so you can instantly make Donald Drumpf again.
