HBO's John Oliver has run out of baseball hats mocking GOP presidential front-runner Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump's newest Russia adviser, Andrew Peek, leaves post: report Hawley expects McConnell's final impeachment resolution to give White House defense ability to motion to dismiss Trump rips New York City sea wall: 'Costly, foolish' and 'environmentally unfriendly idea' MORE’s ancestral surname, “Drumpf.”

“Due to, um, unexpected ludicrous demand, our #MakeDonaldDrumpfAgain hats may be delayed slightly,” said a post at HBO’s online store for Oliver’s show, “Last Week Tonight." "We’ll get them to you as soon as drumpishly possible."


HBO announced on late Tuesday it had placed orders for about 35,000 hats, The New York Times reported.

“All hats are being sold at cost, because we know nothing would irritate [Trump] more than someone choosing not to make a profit,” the network’s store said of the headwear, which sells for $17.50 apiece.

The Times also said a related Google Chrome extension that changes Trump’s last name into “Drumpf” has been downloaded more than 433,000 times.

Oliver unloaded on Trump late last month, devoting his entire 30-minute broadcast to bashing the real estate tycoon.

“At this point, Donald Trump is America’s back mole: It may have seemed harmless a year ago, but now that it’s gotten frighteningly bigger, it is no longer wise to ignore it,” he said during his show’s episode on Feb. 28.

The comic ended his broadcast by referring to Trump as “Donald Drumpf,” arguing that the billionaire’s family surname sounds as ridiculous as the man himself.

“Stop and take a moment to imagine how you would feel if you just met a guy named Donald Drumpf, a litigious serial liar with a string of broken business ventures and the support of a former [Ku Klux Klan] leader who he can’t decide whether or not to condemn,” Oliver said.

The Times added on late Tuesday that the sketch has over 19 million views on YouTube, the highest of Oliver’s stint hosting “Last Week Tonight” so far.

Oliver’s previous viewership watermark, a lampooning of FIFA corruption, has earned 12.4 million views. It debuted 14 months ago.
