    Organization apologizes for using Trump’s 'much less magical' ancestral family name in an email to members, blaming a Google Chrome extension that was downloaded by a staff member.


    JTA - Somebody at the American Jewish Congress has clearly been watching comedian John Oliver’s HBO show “Last Week Tonight.”

    The AJCongress — a nearly century-old Jewish advocacy group whose operations have somewhat diminished in recent years — on Thursday emailed out the results of poll about which presidential candidate its members think would be best for Israel. The email was titled “The Results Are In!”

    At the top of the AJCongress list is Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, followed by a name that’s trending online at the moment: “Donald Drumpf.”

    Drumpf is Trump’s “much less magical” ancestral family name, Oliver pointed out on his show two weeks ago, citing Trump biographer Gwenda Blair.

    A couple hours after sending the email, the AJCongress issued a corrected version with a note saying, “The previous version of this email included an unfortunate and unintended spelling mistake. No offense was meant by it. We apologize for any confusion.”

    In a later email, sent Friday, AJCongress attributed the Drumpf “mistake” to a technical error. “Recently, the comedy program ‘Last Week Tonight with John Oliver’ created a Google Chrome extension as part of a bit about Donald Trump. Like many, one of our employees downloaded the extension on a personal computer, and then forgot about it. Its presence resulted in an unfortunate, but unintentional mistake in an email to our supporters.”

    The Google Chrome extension, created by the British host’s team, changes all mentions of Trump to Drumpf.

    The poll purports to reflect the views of nearly 1,000 AJCongress members.

    Oliver’s segment, which has been viewed more than 20 million times on YouTube, has created something of a Drumpf phenomenon. The hashtag #MakeDonaldDrumpfAgain is trending on social media, and “Donald Drumpf” was the second most searched for candidate on Super Tuesday, behind only Trump himself and ahead of Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Cruz.

    Oliver has sold out of an initial run of 35,000 “Make Donald Drumpf Again” hats, which riff on Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.” Trump is the front-runner for the Republican presidential nod.

    Oliver, who got his TV start as a correspondent on Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show,” said on the February 28 show that Trump had put the name issue in play with a 2013 tweet about his former Jewish employer.

    Oliver went on to criticize the Trump brand, highlighting questionable business decisions he said the real estate billionaire has made over the years.

    It's nothing more than Oliver having taken over for Stewart as the guy with no ratings who tells liberals how to think.

    What are the rules for poltical threads in the Stern forum? I created a thread about Obama's daughters and it was moved to Politics. I thought it was odd since the thread wasn't political

    Yeah no fan of Trump but don't see why its funny. But idiots like using made up names to attack people on the internet. Its a common thing and never funny or clever.

    the progressive Nazis love to make fun of people, unless it's their guys that get shit on, then you are a racist, a sexist or an anti-semite.

    I didn't think that anyone could be less funny than Jon Leibowitz, but John Oliver has accomplished it.

    Now Leibowitz. That's a damn funny ancestral name. Oh, the irony!

    John Oliver is right. People should never change their family name. It's a sign of a bad person!

    Sincerely;

    "Drumpf" is just a pathetic attempt to make Trump sound German and equate him with Nazism. The name was perfectly and legally changed ages ago.
