Thankfully, You Now Know How To Talk To Trump Supporters At Thanksgiving!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

While I have many, many more of these screeds in the Pocket account, let’s end this week-long meme on this note (well, until liberals trot out the same stories in a month, substituting Christmas for Thanksgiving)

How to talk to Trump supporters this Thanksgiving

If you’re like me, you’re probably still coming to terms with post-election America. I’m heartbroken so many people voted for an erratic racist and misogynist with no political experience. I’m beyond frustrated to see another climate science denier in power. I fear for my neighbors, my country and the planet. To avoid drowning in my anger, I’m grasping to find some common ground with conservatives.

It’s not going to go far with that attitude.

Thanksgiving presents a great opportunity. Some San Franciscans will spend the holiday with Donald Trump supporters. While avoiding political discussions may be tempting, don’t. Let’s build bridges with friends and family and work to alleviate the growing divisiveness.

When it comes to the environment, relating to conservatives is as simple as changing the message to emphasize economic benefits and religious responsibility.

Again, it’s hilarious that Liberals actually need someone to tell them what to talk about and How To Act Like A Civil Adult. The best advice for liberals is “stop right there. Don’t. No one wants to listen to your screeds about how great it is that men pretending to be women can go into bathrooms and changing rooms with Other People’s daughters.” Better yet, stay home, because the people who need these articles are nutballs.

Conservatives do not need these articles. We know to separate the personal from the political, and to just be content with being with family and friends on a holiday.

Regardless, I wish all our liberal friends a joyous Thanksgiving. Just enjoy. Watch football. Laugh. Love. Eat.
