The trump is an argumentative maneuver first displayed by DJ D. He will quickly suppress any point made by his arguing opponent by denying its credibility and disproving it offhand, often with a tidbit of information presented as fact. Whether or not the information is indeed fact is sometimes unknown. Once DJ D's opponent has been shot down by the tactic, the onlookers usually shout, "Ohhh! Trumped!"
The Raleigh Crew's close friend, Steve O, is also known to use the tactic, sometimes even more often than DJ D. Steve O’s trumps are usually accompanied by a backhanded remark that often embarrasses his opponent further, making them look even more foolish. Steve O will also play the part of the devil's advocate in an argument to further shake the foundation of his adversary.
