World To Give Up Trump For Lent


A SPOKESPERSON for planet Earth has announced that for Lent this year, the world will be giving up talking about, reading about, listening to and thinking about the current President of the United States, Donald J. Trump for forty days and forty nights.

Lent is traditionally the time of year when people attempt to give up harmful vices such as smoking, drinking, eating sweeties and filling their minds with poison, and as such the world has agreed that a detox from the effects of Trump will help to shake off the build-up of negativity that has accrued since he became president in 2016.

Media outlets have agreed to stop writing about Trump, Twitter users have agreed to block him for a month, and civilisation in general has agreed to ignore the controversial head of state until Easter Sunday, when regular service may or may not resume.

“I think we can all agree that 40 days without a mention of Donald Trump will do us the world of good,” said a spokesperson for the World World Committee, using a Google Chrome extension to block all mentions of the words ‘Trump’, ‘POTUS’, and ‘orange prick’.

“And who knows, maybe we won’t just go back to filling our minds with his fear-mongering garbage on Easter Sunday, maybe we’ll just let things roll for the rest of the year. If we can make it through Lent, there’s no reason we can’t do it forever. Let him keep talking shit about whatever the hell he wants, we’re just going to ignore it, pay it no heed, and go on with our lives without him. I think we’ll be just fine”.kj

Trump has reacted to the news that the world will be giving him up for Lent by being louder and more obnoxious, a feat that most people had considered impossible.
