Hi John, thanks so much for reading and responding. You know, I actually have also been writing his name as “trump” since day one, for exactly the same reason you cited, but I’ve only been doing so when referring to him on Twitter and other less formal arenas. You’ve inspired me to change that. Thank you!

I’ve also never been able to say the word ‘President’ before his name. He is merely “trump.” So, henceforth, he is “trump” everywhere. Either that or any of my other assorted favorites:

Individual 1; 45; TR45ON (in certain fonts looks like “TREASON”); Imbecile-in-Chief; Don the Con; Orange Julius Caesar; Barbecued Brutus; Circus Peanut Putin; Cheato Benito Mussolini; Benedict Donald; Donald Tax Duck; Dick Tater; or “Walking Punchline.”

Always a pleasure to meet like-minded folks, especially in today’s America.
