There’s a Chrome Extension That Lets You Block Trump’s Face Online While Donating to a Good Cause

You can now use a Google Chrome extension called Trumpbuster to block all images of the president-elect from your online world. While this may sound silly, getting the extension should make you feel pretty good—all proceeds go directly to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN).

The extension was created to give people the opportunity to remove Trump’s image from their searches. “Whenever I saw his image, I had a reaction I couldn’t control,” the creator of the extension said in an anonymous interview with Refinery29. “It was triggering.”

This isn’t exactly surprising. Trump has a history of making offensive and insensitive comments directed toward women and other minority groups. In October, a 2005 Access Hollywood tape was released that featured Trump making explicit comments about groping women without their consent. His response to this video was that it was just “locker-room talk.” He claimed he would sue the women accusing of him of sexual assault once he was in office. And that’s not to mention every offensive thing he’s said or done with regards to people with disabilities, black people, Muslims, and Mexicans. Simply put, Trump is a very triggering person.

While other web browser extensions have been created that humor the president-elect (including this cheeseburger swapping one), Trumpbuster is different in that it’s not just a joke. It has a cause, and it could really help people who are having a tough time in the aftermath of this election.

Are you willing to donate 99 cents in order to get Trump’s face out of your life? If yes, this Chrome extension is definitely for you.
