Trump Cards

One of the most annoying aspects of the Trump presidency, beside having that asshole as the talking head for my birth nation, is the fact that in Japan playing cards (A234…JQK) are called Trump (トランプ). So, even though political discourse never makes it way into my lessons, I do occationally use playing cards as a learning tool (for counting). Therefore, everytime I bust out playing cards for a lesson I have to hear a gaggle of students exclaim “Trump da yo!!!!”(“トランプだよ!”) It graits on my ears. So much so that I have actually forgone using playing cards for the forseeable future, just so I don’t have to be reminded of that dispicable troll all the way over here in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan.
