At least I do not talk about politics less playing poker, maybe some joke that comes out of some conversation for a play, but I feel like having fun and playing poker, talking about politics or something similar does not give

If someone is especially sensitive about their candidate I like to poke the bear - cause it is a hot subject and can be used to your advantage

Now it's over so everything is back to normal , I don't hear as many as before the elections , talking about Trump or about anything else related to the elections . So now now you should be relieved :)

I assume you are talking about in a live game or online table chat???? If so, then - as allured to - you can really use it to your advantage. Of course, some people are jerks, and they will be jerks about anything. Shutting up about politics will just mean they jerk about something else....

If you are talking about threads in the PL, then the solution is simple...

All poker sites have the option for you to TURN CHAT OFF.
If someone is talking about something you don't care about turn chat off or ignore it.
