    I've looked at every thread posted on PRSI for the first page. Would it surprise you that every single thread talks about Donald Trump? It's true. Almost every single thread created here has Donald Trump involved someway, or another.

    You Americans bring him up constantly for some reason. Even the Brexit thread has had attempts at times to bring him up but the discussion was quickly diverted.

    Quit the obsession I say and remember it’s not all about Trump ;)

    Also wouldn't that include this thread too? :D


    As to the point of your thread, we do have a lot of Trump threads, then again we've never had a pathological lying obsessive celebrity tv host in the WH before so it makes for quite a subject. Trump's Presidency is like a massive car wreck on the highway, everyone slows down to see the carnage and can't look away. Which is usually a result of one idiot behind the wheel.

    Huh. A mentally unbalanced man–child who is systematically destroying the fabric of America and assaulting basic human decency. Who has no empathy for people and yet governs them all. Who has his finger in every issue, but understands none of them.

    And he’s mentioned in every topic in the run-up to a major election.

    Imagine.

    Formal psychiatric designation for the cultish devotion of the Trumpenproletariat.

    The only issue that I have is that PRSI has gotten extremely boring.

    I try to occasionally post something other than politics here but it seems that people only want to discuss politics.

    A bit overkill for an international forum with lots of non Americans having to sift through the Trump fest though.

    Agree but I'll add a word to this:

    Chronic Trump derangement syndrome

    Well in fairness, this thread was specifically about Trump. I think the OP’s point is that someone almost always finds a way to shoehorn him into threads that aren’t even remotely about him.

    Like @Plutonius said, it has gotten old. Trump’s shtick, people’s response to it and others defense of it, some of us are just kind of over it. It’s sometimes frustrating to finally come across a Trump-free thread just to have someone derail it by mentioning some goofy thing he’s said or done. There’s more to life than 24/7 Trump.

    Might as well just change the name of PRSI to “P” :)

    I’ve been hearing about Trump non-stop for the past three years. It’s a nightmare to think it may last until 2024.

    So is it every thread or ALMOST ever single thread ;)

    Trump does have derangement syndrome. It used to be called senile.

    You didn't look very hard or look back very far. There is about a decades worth of posts that never mention the moron in chief, at all. Go to the first posts in PRSI and they're mentioning Bush. Guess you could complain about that, too.

    I'm sure this would make Trump very happy. The key to his success, even long before he ever considered running for president, was to keep people talking. He really lives by the adage that bad press is better than no press. The worst possible thing we could do to Trump is to start ignoring him. In recent weeks I have seen many headlines talking about how Trump is no longer ratings gold... even Fox News isn't covering his rallies like they used to. That probably inspired Trump to get even more theatrical at his rallies and with his Tweets, but Trump's problem is that he still falls back on so much old material. Lucky for him that the Elizabeth Warren DNA test, and the multi-thousand strong caravan headed for our border, pumped new life into some of his older (and most bigoted) material. He is hard to ignore. I will give him that, and not much else.

    Now how many of the Trump threads where there is no mention of Hillary?

    Well, as the chief executive of the nation where most PRSI posters live, who continually ends up in the news cycle by saying controversial things, probably should be part of nearly every single thread.

    I'm not surprised.
