Tired of all things Donald Trump? There’s an app especially designed for you. 

Trump-Filter is an extension for Google Chrome designed by Rob Spectre, a self-proclaimed “internet Mathemagician.”

Why did he design the app? He answered that it’s “out of a profound sense of annoyance and patriotic duty.”

Spectre also told CNN, “I hope folks will take this opportunity to learn more about the wide field of candidates out there.”

Essentially, Donald Trump has been getting an exorbitant amount of attention in the press. Spectre hopes to remove Trump from center stage so that other candidates have a chance to “shine” and thus citizens can learn about the real issues.

As for the app itself, it comes with three settings of Trump filtration: mild, aggressive, and vindictive.

What the app does is it searches for all references to Trump, and then completely eliminates them. For example, apparently if you use just the “mild” setting, Donald Trump’s entire Twitter page is inaccessible. 

Meanwhile, according to the Telegraph, more than 560,000 people in the U.K. signed a petition to ban Trump from entering the country.

The U.K. Government confirmed the petition could be discussed in Parliament now.

The statement said, “The Home Secretary may exclude a non-European Economic Area national from the UK if she considers their presence in the UK to be non-conducive to the public good.”

It added: “Exclusion powers are very serious and are not used lightly. The Home Secretary will use these powers when justified and based on all available evidence.
