US Presidential Elections: British Comic John Oliver Finally Took Down Donald Trump

On Sunday night's edition of Last Week Tonight, British host John Oliver finally took on Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump. The result was a 22-minute roast of epic proportions, excoriating Trump's campaign on each of his supposed selling points and offering some branding advice.

"Donald Trump is America's back mole," Oliver begins the set. "It may have seemed harmless a year ago, but now that it has gotten frighteningly bigger, it is no longer wise to ignore it."

There's Trump's unimpressive business record, which Oliver notes have included the "very un-good" business failures of Trump Shuttle, Trump Vodka, Trump magazine, Trump World magazine, Trump University and "the travel-booking site GoTrump.com, whose brief existence was, I imagine, a real thorn in the side of anyone hoping GotRump.com featured a single thing worth masturbating to."

Referring to Trump's recent refusal to criticize the KKK, Oliver says, "The point is, with an answer like that, you are either racist or you are pretending to be, and at some point, there is no difference there."
