How To Talk To Loved Ones Who Voted The Other Way

I told you I lots of these in the hopper

Here’s what we learned after the ugliest presidential campaign in modern times.

The voters you blame, whose ballots — for Clinton or Trump — so mystify and offend you, are not a distant, unfamiliar America. They are sitting across the dinner table, or the office cubicle, or the bed. They are your parents, your siblings, your friends.

Who wants to have that tough conversation, about why they voted as they did and about how it makes you feel? Just about nobody. So we avoid it. But like it or not, these people are in your life. The holidays are upon us. And deep down, you may actually want to have this talk. You may need to have this talk.

So we put together a guide for how to do it. We consulted with a professional: Liz Joyner, the executive director of The Village Square, an organization that facilitates these kinds of intimate, difficult conversations.

While it is an attempt to bring together all, in reality, it’s attempting to set ground rules to keep liberals from going apeshit during the day, creating a situation where they’ve pissed off all their friends and relatives and either sit there in silence during during, storm out, or create a really uncomfortable atmosphere. Because that’s what they do. They cannot separate the personal from the political.

Look at the last question: 19. Do you still like me? Considering the way so many hardcore Leftists feel, that might not be the best question to ask one.
