While most of the media was convinced that Trump could never be elected president, John Oliver was on TV telling us not to let that happen. Most listened, as Hillary Clinton went on to win the popular vote, but still here we are.

Last night Last Week Tonight, John Oliver devoted his show to looking back at what enabled Trump’s victory, such as the media, social media, and the spread of fiction posing as fact, and what we should do next.

All half hour of the Last Week Tonight's season finale is now available on YouTube. Come for his election coverage, stay for his tribute to this terrible, terrible year.

As America comes to terms with its decision to give a billionaire gameshow host the most powerful job in the world, people from around the world have voiced their opinions. One such person is Mexican cartel kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

In response to the Trump victory, “El Chapo” turned to Twitter, where he previously threatened President-elect Trump. Before quoting Martin Luther King, Jr., El Chapo tweeted:

Currently being held in Mexican prison, El Chapo awaits US extradition. The NY Daily News says they were unable to verify the twitter account @ElChap0Guzman; “though it is believed by some to be run by those close to the imprisoned 61-year-old gangster.”

In the past El Chapo has used to Twitter to threaten Trump, after Trump made disparaging remarks about the Mexican people, claiming that they were “rapists” and “drug dealers.”

“Keep f--king around, and I’ll make you eat all of your godd—n words, f—king whitey f—t @realDonaldTrump,” replied El Chapo.

In response to that, Donald Trump contacted the FBI becuase that's really scary.

In the past few days, The Simpsons has been looked at as some sort of cartoon crystal ball, after successfully predicting Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential win in the year 2000.

Now that the prophecy has come to pass, many wanted to know why they even bothered to make that joke in the first place. Well, wonder no longer. For as it was written, The Hollywood Reporter interviewed the writer who made the joke.

"It was a warning to America," said writer Dan Greaney. “The important thing is that Lisa comes into the presidency when America is on the ropes, and that is the condition left by the Trump presidency. What we needed was for Lisa to have problems that were beyond her fixing, that everything went as bad as it possibly could, and that's why we had Trump be president before her.”

"I am tickled we are getting all this attention, but I don't think it's going to trigger this well-awaited re-evaluation of my episode that I was hoping for.”

So there you have it: It wasn’t a prediction, it was a warning that we failed to heed. Everything’s fine. Well, now that that’s settled, who wants to get some frosty chocolate milkshakes? Anyone? Anyone?

It didn't seem like a really great meeting when Donald Trump met Obama in the White House but the potential for memes just couldn't be ignored.

The CEO of food delivery app GrubHub added something new to the menu that not everyone seems to like. Offering support to employees who feel marginalized or afraid due to the outcome of the presidential election, CEO Matt Maloney sent out a company-wide memo assuring them that they have his full support. However, those who agree with Trump’s message, he indicates, should get the check.

Maloney, who hoped to assure employees that GrubHub was a company dedicated to diversity and inclusion, alienated employees and customers alike by saying that if they don’t agree with this as the company’s mission statement to “reply to this email with your resignation because you have no place here.”

Some people saw this as getting an unwanted side of intolerance, while others think it’s like getting free guac from Chipotle.

Here’s how twitter reacted:

Now that Donald Trump is president, the endorsements will come flooding in. First on the list, shoes, and lots of them. Well, maybe. So far, only one shoe, and it's New Balance.

New Balance has publicly supported Trump for his stance on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which GQ described as "a highly-secretive, 29-nation treaty that amongst many things will lift tariffs on shoes imported from Vietnam." It's a strange move, but these are strange times in which Donald Trump is president.

As the numbers continue to pour in, and it becomes clear that more people in America wanted Hillary Clinton to be president than wanted Donald Trump to be, those who voted with a majority of America are trying to expedite the president elect’s removal. But they aren’t turning law books, they’re turning to Google. Not Bing. Not Ask Jeeves. Google. Because when you need to find out how to impeach a president, accept no substitutes.

According to Metro, searches for “how to impeach a president” have surged by almost 5,000 percent (4,850 percent, to be exact). Meanwhile, online petitions to impeach Trump have begun to spring up and have received thousands of signatures, including one that has collected 13,322 names.

So it’s clear, this is a subject of major public interest, but what do the experts say? Well, thanks to Trump University, the public might have a case.

The Daily Mail reports:

“University of Utah Law professor Christopher Peterson said he found evidence to charge Trump with fraud and racketeering — felonies within state and federal law.

“'In the United States, it is illegal for businesses to use false statements to convince consumers to purchase their services,' Mr Peterson said. 'The evidence indicates that Trump University used a systemic pattern of fraudulent representations to trick thousands of families into investing in a program that can be argued was a sham.’

'Fraud and racketeering are serious crimes that legally rise to the level of impeachable acts.’”

Can you impeach a president before they take the oath? I'm asking for a friend.
