You can hope for that, but two things should be clear by now: Trump just can't stop Trumping, and his base is as large as it will ever be.
Some Republicans may see the light. Far more will increase their efforts to destroy democratic processes in the USA through gerrymandering, voter suppression, and the like.

With Trump's pick for Chief of staff turning him down, at least in the eyes of some political operatives he has passed his peak.

I don't know about anybody else, but I certainly reached Peak Trump some time ago.

Please, America, make it stop.

I have toilet tissue with Trump's face on it which comes in quite handy for certain situations such as you describe.

You know, if you see someone just spamming the forum, you should probably just ignore them or report them for breaking Rule 6 and Rule 11. For everything else there's ignore lists.

Remember when you were in school and there was always this one guy who had to shout random, weird things during class discussion to get attention? You didn't all stop your discussion and tell him how he was wrong or attention-craving, you just ignored him in the hope he would eventually grow up .

You really think he's going to get infracted for off-topic trolling after all these years?
