10 Things that Will Trigger Americans

We have a bunch of trigger list on this site focusing on particular group of people, I figured I will stick with a list of things that Trigger people in general at this moment 2016-2020 With this list I'm focusing on the USA

The Top Ten

Donald Trump Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States. Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. In 1971, ...read more.

What a couple of hypocrites, they say America treats Trump like a god, when most people on social media get cringe stuff trending, and stupid kpop fancams if someone says all lives matter in response to blacKKK lives matter.

Let’s hope he loses the 2020 election, because we knew he was gonna be a terrible president before he got elected, and our predictions were right. He has been very corrupt during his presidency, and especially in 2019. He implemented a few month long bans on people from certain Muslim countries as well as North Korea, he didn’t show respect whenever a tragic event such as a mass shooting happened, and made stupid claims such as windmill noises causing cancer. Oh, and he also did some beneficial things to our country too. He wasn’t that bad after all since there have been presidents that were even worse than him in my opinion such as George W. Bush, Andrew Johnson, and Richard Nixon.

Every single President has done some beneficial things to our country too, the only thing different between him and the worst Presidents we have had, is that some how Trump has found a way to make all the terrible things he does seem normal and usually loves to reflect every bad thing he does has someone else's fault.

Terrible president who shut down the government over different opinion and is a climate change denier. Huge sellout to the "globalism" that he promised to combat in 2016.

The Americans voted for him anyway. Not a fan of Trump at all and that being said by someone who doesn’t give a damn about politics.

Gun Control

There many Mass Shootings and the U.S tops in the list for having most of it in their homeland. From School Shootings to Mass Shootings, it will be the everyday norm for Americans to shoot each other. Presidents and Politicians have derailed against Video Games and Entertainment by claiming that they are the source of violence. Despite the fact, Hollywood and Game Developers are centred in the United States. True Americans will deny Mass Shootings because they want to protect the rights of owning a gun without conditions. Two Mass Shootings occurred with the other one happening in less than 24 hours. Good Job America! A whole new record.

Even in 2019, we’re still having mass shootings, and this is why the gun control debate is so relevant in present day America. Criminals and the mentally ill are gonna easily get guns in the hands of them and kill people in schools (Highlands Ranch, UNC Charlotte), shopping centers (El Paso), offices (Aurora), places of worship (Poway), bars (Dayton), wherever, because of how weak our gun laws are, and even if we banned guns, criminals are still gonna keep them. It’s such a sad reality that needs to stop.

The guns shouldn't be the only focus here, the jarring amount if mentally unstable/hateful people who do the mass shootings are a large, large part of the problem. Gang violence is also a big part of the problem. Finding ways that dangerous people can't get/don't have guns is the thing we need to do

Sorry but this comment is very confusing, having better gun control laws will take care of a lot of what you just said in this comment, and there should be a ban on assault rifle, Trump has even said this in his book on the issue of gun control

Guns? Trigger? Sorry, couldn't help it. In all seriousness, this will always be an issue of debate and disagreement because America will seemingly always hang on to its right to bear arms no matter what. If Sandy Hook doesn't change America's minds...I (as an outsider) don't think anything will. Sad.


You care more about stem cells than a human being.
God gives abortions when there is miscarriages = fact.

Whether you are pro-choice or pro-life bring up the abortion issue will cause a huge debate

Kind of like 90% of your comments about certain political or religious affiliation.

No don’t start another week argument germshep24 you don’t know what you are doing

Although, I'm a lefty, I think abortion should only be allowed in cases like rape or if it has to be done in order to save the woman. Other than that, it should be illegal.

Global Warming

This is a real problem we need to stop. Do you really trust one persons judgement over a million people? Really! The ocean is rising and everything is getting hotter. If we don’t stop this we’re all going to die from it. That’s the truth.

It is real and a huge issue, regardless of what some random Republican speaker says. I'd rather trust scientists than politicians.

If we don’t do anything about this right now, cities such as San Francisco and New York are gonna be submerged by 2100.

Edit: The fact that the two cities being submerged by 2100 is only a possibility. We’ll just have to wait and see.

New York and San Francisco will not be submerged by 2100, what a ridiculous statement.

Not if we fix the Global warming issue, the bottom line is the ocean level will continue to rise has the polar ice caps continue to melt

Transgendered People

Those that are born with the wrong gender identity, back in the day people just kind of ignored them, like homosexuality, but know it is in the forefront much like what happened with women's rights and racial rights. We are right in the middle of a big change in human rights and that always seems to cause controversy

They are just human beings.
Can you see the adams apple of a transgender man? No
Can you see the adams apple of a transgender woman? Yes

Not all of them are bad

there’s nothing wrong with being transgender

The Media

It's true. The mainstream media can no longer be trusted. We have National Propaganda Radio, the Propaganda Broadcasting Service, Corruption News Network, Fraud News, and The New York Lies. Listen to independent sources that aren't influenced by large corpos (like Disney or NBC) or the government. My list on alternative news sources may help you find some.

Americans absolutely do not trust anything that is said by the media, it has gotten so bad that Americans just don't trust anything the hear unless it supports what they already believe, it is so bad that things that we know as facts because they have already been proven are now looked at like it needs to be proven, because we just don't trust anything anymore

You don’t deserve to be brainwashed by sources such as CNN and Fox News, why not read the New York Times instead?

New York Times is just as bad. All government friendly mainstream media sources are bad and usually unreliable

I hate the media. it spreads lies


Tax collector: You made $12,000? Good for you.

Me: yup

Tax collector: let me borrow some

Me: why

Tax collector: because I said so, if you don't give me it you will give more. And if not then say goodbye to everything you love

Me: 😒

The things that pisses off everyone since the beginning of the first civilization

Diversity in Film

Whether it be stereotypes, not enough of a particular group, or too much of a particular group, there is no pleasing the audience.

we should have more diversity in movies


We have a lot of racist people coming out of the woodwork lately whether it be people being proud of being a Nazis or a white Nationalist. These groups of people hate being considered a racist, they think it is racist to call them a racist. It is a weird time

Most of these are worth getting upset over and racism is no exception. Whether it's the Far Right who hate minorities or social justice warriors who hate white people.

please don't be racist to the mexican community or any comminity of different races for that matter...
your making urself look ridiculous if you are being racist.

I hate when people are racist

Star Wars

Whether it be the fans that only love the original trilogy, those that hate seeing the main character being a female Jedi/SJW propaganda, that they disrespected the original characters, or the people that hate the new movies for being a carbon copy of the original trilogy. The new Star Wars movie will trigger debates when mentioned.

Don't forget the debates over whether Star Wars or Star Trek is better. And by "debates" I mean insult contests. (Source: I've been on the Internet since 1995. I have experience with this. And for the record, I love both franchises.)

Of course, that debate has been going on since the original Star Wars trilogy came out

So first things worthy of being upset over and now stuff that very few people are actually triggered by. Shame such a good list idea had to be wasted into making such garbage.

Every community list is bound to get ruined with dumb things, what you going to do, though I added Star Wars just so it wasn't all heavy subject matter

The Contenders

The LGBT Community

Even if you're with or without, it causes debate

Sure does trigger 50% of people on the Right(Not all Right Wingers just like half of them really).

It mostly just affects the religious ones that believe Homosexuality is a sin, which in return triggers the left, because they constantly keep talking about it being a sin

The community is toxic

I'm so tired of this LGBTQXTL7Z? Emoji stuff I could scream!


Given how divisive politics is these days, people usually just throw a tantrum when someone disagrees with them instead of having a calm discussion, or even agreeing to disagree. See also: Conservatives.

Climate Change
Disney's Live-action Remakes

Let us be honest most of them have been average and they are not as good as the originals. The only ones I’d consider decent are The Jungle Book and maybe Aladdin. Even then these movies are nothing more than lazy cash grabs that aren’t worth watching.

Yes, they have been average, some entertaining some shallow copies of the original, but your not paying for a great movie but to see these movies brought to life for better or worse

This is a nice add, these live action movies seem to piss people off and really there is no reason to be pissed about them


It triggered the haters so much. Look how many people hate Fortnite on this site. Also, I think it triggers more people than just in the USA.

It just needs to go away

Why aren’t there more people like me who just think that Fortnite is kind of good? It’s either you’re obsessed with it and think it’s the best game ever or you despise it and think it’s the worst game ever.

People don't really hate the actual game, most just hate how popular it is and think the dances are annoying, which is a common trend for any game that blows up

Video Games

Only retarded soccer moms are triggered by this.

And conservatives trying to avoid the gun issue in the US, they love to throw video games under the bus for our mass shooting problem (Our President even took that route)

I’m fine with them but there’s always people out there saying that Call of Duty causes mass shootings

Alex Jones Alexander Emric Jones is an American radio show host and conspiracy theorist. He hosts The Alex Jones Show from Austin, Texas, which airs on the Genesis Communications Network across the United States and online.

Here’s one of everyone’s least favorite celebrities. Raving about why the conspiracy theories he makes up are true. They are just stupid and could be very offensive at times.

Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. ...read more.

Imagine still finding him relevant in 2019

Hating on Justin Bieber in 2019 is like beating a dead horse. The guy has been irrelevant and mediocre at best for years now

Electoral College

It's not one big country. We have 50 separate states that have agreed to form a union. There are 50 separate state elections (+DC) every 4 years for president. The states electoral votes are weighted by state population. So the bigger states do get more say in who gets elected. Whoever gets the most 'electoral votes' from those is the duly elected president. In a national popular vote if the biggest few cities voted heavily enough for 1 candidate they could over take even the majority of the states. Lets say 3 or 4 cities like Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and Philadephia + DC voted 80% -90% for one candidate, while the remaining 44 states voted for the other candidate at a 55% rate those few cities would dictate the winner forever.

Consider for a minute...if the Electoral College is abolished then the bigger states have complete control over everything...essentially giving the middle finger to the smaller states because they will no longer matter.

Yes but that ignores that the bigger states also have more weight in the electoral college since bigger states have more representatives than smaller states

If we get rid of this the big cities get control and we would have a communist government by now

Well if we do the popular vote not the electoral yes I know democrats will basically win every election the thing that republicans are trying to prevent is someone like Sanders getting into office if he wins bam we are socialist one step closer to being communist and the electoral college is a fair system in my opinion both Democrats and republicans have a fair chance of winning instead the popular vote where New York And Los angles controls the president

It is not healthy place and it has junk food and bad food

Medical Bills
Teen Pregnancy

Some teenage girls are quite stupid to be honest since they choose to have sex unprotected, then get pregnant which changes their life for the ugly. Yeah, and blame the school she goes to for not having a sex education class.

Don't think this really triggers people in and of its self, unless you're the parent of the pregnant teen, people get triggered if the teenage decides to abort the fetus otherwise it just kind of makes people sad

Maybe because it's unhealthy and because teens aren't ready to raise a child yet.
