I’m starting this thread reluctantly because I know I’m going to be attacked because of it and I really hate confrontation, online or in real life, but its affecting my enjoyment of the SD and I’m sure also other peoples.
Yes you don’t like Donald Trump, we get it, I don’t like him either, but does he have to put in an appearance in so many threads? Even those with basically no connection in any sense to politics somehow have to have him shoe-horned in there usually with a ‘clever’ comment or reference.
Personally I’m tired of opening an interesting looking thread and it being once again side-tracked by references and remarks about Trump, for me at least it breaks ‘suspension of disbelief’ for want of a better phrase. I come to the SD at least partially to get away from politics and to come across politically references again and again in so many threads and discussions is jarring at best, a complete thread kill at worst.
I recall someone giving the advice ‘don’t let other people live inside your head’, meaning don’t keep thinking and obsessing about people who have wronged you, because you can be certain they aren’t thinking about you.
Well the SD is obsessed with Donald Trump, and its a lot less fun and pleasant place to be as a result.
Sadly, that game isn’t too bad. Played and had quite a bit of fun with it. Though seeing his face or name on just about everything in/on that box is was nauseating even back in the 90s. We got it as a goof at Big Lots. It was $5 marked down from $50.
Wish OPs would be allowed to have threads titled: “Trump-free” and the mods would clamp down on anyone who tries to derail such a thread by putting Trump content. Problem is, you couldn’t look at such a thread title without immediately thinking Trump.

As far as I can tell, that’s zero out of ten that are about Trump.
I had a real cool weekend. Met with an old friend I've know for 30 years. Best buds.
She happens to live in Central City Colorado. And this was going on. - [Hot Rod Hill Climb](http://hotrodhillclimb.com/)
Cool classic cars from Model T's to Ford roadsters. Beers, pizza and poker afterword's. (It's a gambling town, lost $10, but beers were free).
Doesn't get much better than that.
(don't quite know how to talk about something that someone doesn't want to talk about. So...)
It’s easy to say if one has any sense of socialization. You really think it’s normal or evidence of proper mental health to shoehorn Trump into every conversation? It can’t be. Trump is literally living in a sizable portion of the population’s brains rent free.
Sure think about Trump all you like but if you order an ice cream cone his name probably shouldn’t be part of that conversation.
That said… I do understand that we live in nutty times but the problem isn’t Trump. He’s only a symptom and fixating on the symptom is counterproductive.
