One of the most exhaustive Trump filters available, this promises to keep your entire online experience Donald-free. Feeling a bit more kindly disposed to the candidate on some days than others? You can adjust your level of Trump-saturation based on your mood and attitude. Perfect for the person who wavers on how much Trump they can handle. The only problem with his extension is it can be a little over-enthusiastic; some users have complained that on higher levels, it eliminates any mention of any Donald, Trump or otherwise.
