I hate to be kinda a douche here, and I know this is going to sound douchy and I'm sorry, but doesn't this have absolutely nothing to do with Video games, or movies or entertainment or what ever? For a magazine called the escapist, isn't this exactly the sort of thing we're all trying to "escape" from?

I've got to agree actually. I'm so sick and tired of hearing about Donald Trump that I could puke.

What old habits were those?

Sure, Twitter is a veritable hellhole (much of teh internetz is), but it's a platform Trump is choosing to abuse use. I'm not sure where the BuzzFeed comparison comes in; records of Trump's actual twisted ramblings are presented (replete with their variously psychotic exclamation marks... Very strange!), with a little commentary or presentation of responses included. That's as moderate as you can get.

Trump's a potentially very dangerous idiot president-elect - he needs to be watched, and held accountable by as many people as possible. One or two such pieces at Escapist aren't going to distract from the games/pop culture coverage.

I'm absolutely inclined to agree. As much as I dislike the guy, I come here knowing I can get away from things like this.

Unless he does something that directly affects gaming, please can we keep Mr Orange Is The New Black away form the pages of The Escapist?

I mean come on, we're going to be seeing enough of this guy over the next four years (although I hope he doesn't make it to four, come on impeachment proceedings!) we don't need to see his spray tanned mug here as well.

We get it, you people don't like Trump. The constant attacks are getting old... This is just self induced hysteria at this point.

I don't want to read about Trump at all; so I clicked on the link to a Trump-related gallery of tweets.

While I see what you're trying to say, I actually didn't read the article, I went straight to the comments to let the escapist know that this is exactly the kind of thing I don't want to see on their site.

Uhhh... What? Cmon this site doesn't need this. Buzzfeed lit a tire fire with documents that the BBC, MSNBC, Fox, The Washington Post, etc all chose not to run because it was unverifiable and caused a furore about it everywhere.

The moral of this story? Buzzfeed are a terrible news outlet and they thought Gawker was lonely in news media hell. Don't be another Buzzfeed.

(Please note that this is not a Pro Trump post. I don't like Trump, but Buzzfeed's conduct and this article is what this is about).

How can Clinton have hoped to be a better president when she not only can't shitpost anywhere near as well as Trump, she can't even hire people at his level to do it for her.

At least Sanders hired grad students who often stole quotes from others who could mildly shitpost.

posting clickbit articles that have little or nothing to do with with gaming as a whole, the escapist got lampooned for doing that a while ago until they announced they were gonna refocus their efforts and and be more accountable, it was kinda half heated but it was ok, until now

Sure, Twitter is a veritable hellhole (much of teh internetz is), but it's a platform Trump is choosing to abuse use.

considering you are not making the buzzfeed/clickbait connection and the obvious passive aggressive tone (as well as that lovely "we must unite" for trump is the enemy" remarks) I'm going to assume that any attempt to discuss the matter with will fall on deaf ears, but again that does not change the fact that twitter is a huge dumpster fire that need to go away, and i for one do not care nor find any reason why anyone should care about the rambles of anyone be it presedent, celebrity, sjw, nra, nazi, whatever on this site unless it refers to gaming. you want to care and raise (and im assumeing because you've made it pretty obvious) your Anti-Trump Flag? Fine, do it over on buzz feed or some other political site where the every news story is like "who's line is it anyway"

the rest of us are tired of this shtick
