When it comes to the anti-Trump movement John Oliver created on his HBO show Last Week Tonight, it sounds like Jay-Z is on board. The rap mogul reportedly wants a hat stating “Make Donald Drumpf Again,” which the show has been selling at cost in order to spread the word about why Trump shouldn’t be president.
Appearing on The Late Show, Oliver told Stephen Colbert, “Apparently Jay Z’s people called HBO asking for a hat.” Jay-Z may want a free hat, but Oliver encouraged the rapper to instead buy one. “Spring for a hat, let it it trickle down,” he said.
Oliver hosted a segment on Feb. 28 that fact-checked the many reasons why people like and support Trump, disproving each and every one. In particular, he called out Trump for once criticizing John Stewart for changing his name, when a biographer discovered that Trump’s family name was actually Drumpf. He and his show spawned the joke “Make Donald Drumpf Again.” They have reportedly already sold 35,000 hats.
