I want to continue to talk trump while white supremacist groups are round up and imprisoned, I want to continue to talk about trump as we charge any and all GOP politicians under the 14th Amendment and imprison them or worse. Trump is wannabee Hitler, Stalin, Attilia the Hun and we must never forgot and must ensuretrump supportersnever forget what is waiting for them

..but reporting someplace we can go to voluntarily or at least a trump trigger warning before anything about him is reported so we can change the channel. We need to make sure he and his inbred clan are thoroughly beaten to the ground every single time they attempt to slither out of their hidey holes.

There was much less coverage of 45. I think it is happening, but gradually.

to the mainstream media and any other form of publicity 45 is receiving. It is irresponsible not to do so. It shapes how we inform ourselves and others.

“If you know your enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

We have to know the enemy and the enemy is tRump and his cronies... YMMV

And I confess (no need to, it's obvious) that I have fully participated in the daily dread obsession of HIM for these five years (name-calling, outrage, shock), one thing I have really wished all along is that his EFFING FACE not appear anywhere and especially not at DU. It has been a travesty that on any given news webpage, every single report/article/item has been deemed necessary to attach a pic of his EFFING FACE, one time I counted 13 pics of his EFFING FACE on one webpage, often the same pic, like we don't know what his EFFING FACE looks like?!1

Another irksome thing especially here is when CUTEsy or almost affectionate names are used, like "Donnie" and "Trumpy."

wreck the country, and sabotage Biden's future presidency, with the complicity of most of the R party. Also, there are armed mobs threatening violence or even civil war on his behalf.

I understand not wanting to keep seeing things about him, but if that's the case, then you probably shouldn't frequent a board that primarily discusses current political events.
