Surviving Thanksgiving Dinner With Your Lib-Left Relatives
The last thing that GQ (Gentleman’s Quarterly), whose latest headline is: “It’s Your Civic Duty to Ruin Thanksgiving by Bringing Up Trump ,  can lay any claim to is being “gentlemanly”.

Sodden with ‘Snowflake’ tears and feeling sorry for themselves, GQ advises: “This Turkey Day, Consider Making Life HELL for a Few of Your Relatives. It’s late-November 2017, and you know what that means: Every man you’ve ever seen on TV for any reason has just been unmasked as a woman-hating sewer ghoul. Also, it’s time to ruin your Trump-supporting family’s Thanksgiving — for America!” (Rush Limbaugh, Nov. 22, 2017)

Bring this chart to Thanksgiving dinner.

Oh, Brother!

Says El Rushbo: “Here’s a piece from GQ, Gentleman’s Quarterly. They just put Colin Kaepernick on their cover as Citizen of the Year, a guy who’s never voted has become Citizen of the Year at GQ, a supposed men’s fashion magazine. In fact, the way to lead into this is to share with you a tweet from Chuck You Schumer. We were talking about this earlier this week. ()

Turns out that first off the mark in taking up GQ’s advice was Inauguration Day Boo-Hoo’er Chuck Schumer with a markedly sour-puss Tweet:

“Bring this chart to Thanksgiving dinner. It’ll come in handy when that family member who always talks politics tells you the Republican tax bill helps the middle class.

“And he’s got a chart here from the Joint Committee on Taxation, which is a bunch of caca, showing that the Republican tax bill, House and Senate version, only cut taxes for the wealthiest Americans. It’s nowhere near the case. The wealthiest Americans are not gonna get a tax cut. Well, they’re not gonna get a rate reduction. In fact, they’re going to pay a special rate of 46% in order to make sure they don’t get a tax rate reduction. But, anyway, it’s how the leftists ruin Thanksgiving, how they seek to ruin Thanksgiving. Here’s Chuck Schumer printing out a chart in a tweet, you’re supposed to print it out, take it with you to Thanksgiving dinner and provoke an argument among any Republicans at your Thanksgiving dinner and then throw this chart in their face to show them how wrong they are and how the Republican tax reform bill is only again benefitting the rich.”

“Thanksgiving is a celebration of community and gratitude, where we reconvene in our nostalgia-drenched hometowns and perform time-honored traditions such as almost sleeping with your high school crush and going around the table to say what you’re most thankful for and where you were on 9/11.” (GQ)

“It goes on and on to talk about what happens at Thanksgiving dinner. And then offers a few suggestions for how to ruin Thanksgiving. “Don’t show up. For some parents, your absence will speak louder than any sodden arguments over the density of pumpkin pie.”

Thanks to Rush for giving the lib-left a bad case of indigestion before even sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner in his spot-on explanation of of capitalism-versus-socialism:

“The thing about socialism and capitalism — very easy to remember this, folks. We’ve observed this on many previous occasions. In capitalism, rich people become powerful. In capitalism, middle-class people could become rich. In capitalism, middle-class people could become rich and then become powerful. (Rush)

“In socialism, the powerful become rich. In socialism, the great middle class has no chance to become powerful or rich, by design. And that leaves only one place for people to go to acquire power and to acquire money, and that is the government and, more importantly, running it, having control over it. And human nature being what it is, it is why socialism always ends up being a tyranny.”

A few pointers from CFP on how to get through GQ’s It’s Your Civic Duty to Ruin Thanksgiving by Bringing Up Trump Thanksgiving Dinner.

Just as they’re filling their plates, loudly remind all Trump-hating relatives that just like the turnip in Aunt Susie’s casserole,  the turkey they are about to eat once had feelings too.

Blast out Kate Smith’s version of ‘God Bless America’ and insist that everyone sing along with it.

Spill your glass of burgundy on the nearest anti-Trump relative and pretend it is encroaching age that is making you so clumsy, and like the wine, it’s sooner or later bound to hit them.

Tell the biggest Hillary Clinton joke you’ve ever heard and keep giggling throughout the dinner long after it’s told.

Remind them they should be watching the football game, because they’ll be the only ones watching it today.

The very best way to win the last word with any relative on a mission to insist: “It’s Your Civic Duty to Ruin Thanksgiving by Bringing Up Trump?

“Pass the gravy, Hillary.”
