John Oliver sunk his teeth into Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump during the long segment on the latest Last Week Tonight. The whole 21-minute video is definitely worth a watch, but the real fun starts around the 18-minute mark.
Oliver brings to light that Donald's family name hasn't always been Trump. In fact, one of his ancestors changed the name a while back, from the not-so-pleasing sounding "Drumpf," which Oliver says is the "sound produced when a morbidly obese pigeon flies into the window of a foreclosed Old Navy."
In standard Oliver-ian fashion, the host took this as an opportunity to mock Trump by spreading the hashtag #MakeDonaldDrumpfAgain, launching DonaldJDrumpf.com, selling hats, and even creating a Chrome extension—The Drumpfinator—that will switch every instance of "Trump" on a webpage to "Drumpf."
Once you've added the extension to Chrome, just head to any page where the word "Trump" appears, and the Drumpfinator will do the rest.
The Drumpfinator only works on text within a page, so images emblazoned with "Trump" will remain that way. Also, the extension is a little buggy. You can activate the extension by clicking on the icon in your extensions tray, but if that doesn't work, you can also activate it by pressing Control + R (Windows) or Command + R (Mac) to Drumpf-ify the page.
If you like the idea of the Drumpfinator but think that "Drumpf" might not be a good-enough replacement, there are plenty of other Trump filter extensions, which you can use to change his name to everything from "Voldemort" to "butt," or replace his image with a poop emoji.
Now all that's left to do is to find a way to use the Drumpfinator on the actual ballots.
