Chrome Browser Filter Lets You Block Trump Stories

Politico reports:

Those resolving to see less of Donald Trump in 2016 may have a new Google Chrome browser extension to install. Dubbed “Trump Filter” by creator Rob Spectre, the open-source extension searches websites that users visit and strips out any mentions of the Republican presidential candidate, claiming to scrub Trump “from all your web browsing without leaving the Internet.”

On the Trump Filter website, Spectre writes that he was not put up to creating the filter by either party, “the Obama Administration, my mother or any other possible sphere of influence.” “I am doing this out of a profound sense of annoyance and patriotic duty,” writes Spectre, whose site describes him as a Brooklyn-based “punk rock technolologist [sic] having a barrel of monkeys on the Internet.”

A second Chrome add-on turns every mention of “Trump” to “Valdemort.”
