Tired of Trump stories: Google Chrome offers tip

MPs debate ban of Trump

Tired of hearing and reading about Donald Trump all the time? Finally, there’s a filter for Donald Trump. A Google Chrome extension allows you to filter out any stories about the Republican presidential front-runner from your browser. According to the Daily news: The “Trump Filter” scans websites for mentions of the bombastic and outspoken  billionaire and then scrubs him “from all your web browsing without leaving the Internet,” said the extension’s creator, Rob Spectre. “I am doing this out of a profound sense of annoyance and patriotic duty,” Spectre wrote on the “Trump Filter” website.

This is not a political game from anybody

Spectre said he was not “put up to this by the Republican or Democratic Parties, the Obama Administration, my mother or any other possible sphere of influence.” Spectre, of Brooklyn, said the reaction he’s getting to the filter reflects the reaction many have to the Trump’s campaign antics. “It appears there is a strong sentiment among Internet consumers to get broader coverage of this primary election’s wide field of candidates,” he said.

Spectre said the filter keeps Trump off your computer, but there’s nothing for television yet. “However, we hope that enough installs will be a strong signal to the international media that America is ready to move on from this inveterate jack–s,” Spectre wrote on the website. If you can’t wait for the TV filter, Spectre wrote, just turn it off. Recently, Trump was named as the second most admired man alongside the Pope.

Trump and Carson’s books found in the humor section

Political books from Donald Trump and Ben Carson are on the best-seller lists and in the “humor” section at one national bookstore. A Barnes and Noble in Miami put Trump’s “Crippled America: How to Make America Great Again” and Carson’s “A More Perfect Union: What We the People Can Do to Reclaim Our Constitutional Liberties” on a shelf labeled “books that make you laugh.” Asked about how his book would end up on the funny shelf, Carson said that was also a joke. Trump is yet to respond but surely will have something to give the bookstore.
