Real estate mogul and human carrot Donald Trump has inexplicably taken to the top of the Republican polls with a torrent of lies and empty promises and continues to surge toward the GOP nomination.

Last Week Tonight host and man of the people John Oliver has finally stepped up and destroyed everything we think we know about the Trump brand.

Watch the full, 20-minute takedown here:

Our main story was about Donald Trump. We can't believe we're saying that either.

Posted by Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on Sunday, February 28, 2016

The Donald's apparent victory appears to stem from his own personal claims that he is successful and has great ideas. But according to a Politifact exposé, around 76% of the things he says are some degree of false.

On top of that, he can't seem to make his mind up on anything, and doesn't seem to care about anyone other than himself.

To highlight the disingenuous nature of everything about Donald Trump, John Oliver's team dug up a biography alleging his family name isn't actually Trump, it's Drumpf. Which doesn't carry nearly as much weight or eschew the idea of quality.

And just to rub things in, John Oliver has set up DonaldJDrumpf.com, started selling Make Donald Drumpf Again hats, and even filed a request to trademark the word Drumpf.

One of many reasons why we absolutely love John Oliver.
