36. Just saying his legitimate name "Trump" will go a long way toward clarity in messaging...

Plus, some of us don't believe he was legitimately elected, so calling him President is, and always was, offensive.
Offensive as he may personally be, there are plenty of others who can deal with the reality that he was indeed elected, inaugurated, and served one full term. Ignoring facts and playing these games doesn't change history.

Besides, in order to have an intelligent conversation about him (or "current events" that involve him, or that are the result of him) you don't need to use the word "president". Just saying his legitimate name "Trump" will go a long way toward clarity in messaging and being able to exchange ideas and observations and analysis in a less confusing, less cryptic and ... frankly... an adult manner.

I'm happy that so many are actively taking his name out of the conversation.
All I'm trying to say is that this type of behavior truly serves no good purpose. It's a fad (and one that I hope ends soon) and is no better than other juvenile name-calling. Being able to discuss issues, current-events, history without needing a cheat-sheet of the latest fad nickname/insult is much better than pretending that such antics actually make a difference, or that Trump even cares what this small community thinks or says. (Hint: he doesn't.)
