It seems like Donald Trump has some steep competition for the biggest news maker these days. On the Feb. 28 episode of Last Week Tonight, John Oliver let us all know that the Republican front runner who has proven (and is proud!) to be an over-the-top, polarizing political force is about to be taken down by one Donald Drumpf. Who is Donald Drumpf, you ask? According to the segment, which has garnered nearly 17.5 million views on YouTube in under a week, Trump's family name was changed from Drumpf when they entered the United States, and Trump has downplayed this fact by barely mentioning its existence. In fact, Trump himself has yet to comment on the segment, but some very famous names are lighting up at the prospect of Trump vs. Drumpf.

Of course, lots of names were changed when immigrants arrived to this country, so it's not particularly unusual or surprising. But what Oliver's segment addresses is the silliness of the name. "Trump" sounds regal. "Drumpf" sounds, well, drumpfy. It's not clear why Trump hasn't commented on the segment, but he's had issues with Oliver in the past, and he doesn't seem to shy away from controversy, so for now, we'll have to make do with the best celebrity reactions to the Donald Drumpf segment.
