For those who say Donald Trump is too much a part of their daily lives these days, a new Internet tool can solve some of that problem. Created by Brooklyn-based "Mathemagician" Rob Spectre, the "Trump Filter" is a Google Chrome browser extension that strips any mentions of the Republican presidential front-runner, claiming to "eliminate Donald Trump from all your web browsing without leaving the Internet," Politico reported.
Spectre wrote on his website that he was not "put up to this by the Republican or Democratic Parties, 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."
But Spectre warns that as hard as he tried, not all Trump instances can be removed and there are medium limitations, as well.
"Tragically, Trump Filter cannot be installed on your television," Spectre wrote on his website. "However, we hope that enough installs will be a strong signal to the international media that America is ready to move on from this inveterate jackass.
On Twitter, Spectre declared he "fixed the Internet."

Spectre said he created the Trump Filter in reaction to people on the Internet who were outraged over the incessant coverage of the real estate mogul and disappointed by the limitations of other apps promising to deliver a similar result.
He told Fast Company that it "came about in response to a growing swell of demand I saw on the Internet to curb the seemingly incessant coverage of this substanceless campaign. Donald Trump is America's reality TV candidate, missing only the most important attribute of that format - the ability to turn him off."
