UPDATE: Cher Weighs In On John Oliver’s Donald Trump ‘Drumpf’ Campaign

UPDATE: Tuesday, March 1 (2:05 p.m. ET) – Donald Trump must be thrilled that John Oliver’s movement to promote the bombastic billionaire’s original family name — Drumpf — appears to be gathering steam, with pop icon Cher referring to the controversial presidential candidate with the moniker in a recent Tweet, revealing that a Republican friend is so despondent over The Donald’s apparent lock on the GOP nomination that he’s considering supporting the Democratic nominee in the upcoming election:

If you’re a fan of Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, then you know the former Daily Show correspondent likes to get in-depth to tackle a single issue in each episode of his HBO comedy series. During last night’s show, Oliver zeroed in on his latest target: Donald Trump.

Why now? Oliver explains: “At this point, Donald Trump is America’s back mole. It may have seemed harmless a year ago, but now that it’s become frighteningly bigger, it’s no longer wise to ignore it.”;

As is his style, Oliver held nothing back, describing the bombastic billionaire as a “bulls*** artist”; and “a litigious serial liar with a string of broken business ventures and the support of a former Klan leader.”;

Oliver’s point: to make viewers focus on Trump’s controversial (and all-over-the-place) policies instead of the well-worn “brand”; everybody knows from The Celebrity Apprentice. However, Oliver shared, in the course of the show’s Trumped-up research they had come across a fascinating little nugget of information — generations ago, the Trump family name had been changed from its original incarnation: Drumpf!

“F***ing Drumpf!” Oliver exclaimed with giddy excitement. “Drumpf is much less magical. It’s the sound produced when a morbidly obese pigeon flies into the window of a foreclosed Old Navy. Drumpf: It’s the sound of a bottle of store-brand root beer falling off the shelf in a gas station minimart.”
