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

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.

    We all have much to be thankful for particularly now that Hillary will never be President.

    Korrupt-o-Chump has been too busy bilking the world since his election to listen in on the daily security briefings. Fortunately Mr. Pence has been on it.

    Pence will run the country, Korrupt-o-Chump will run his businesses from the People’s House.

  3. Jeffery says:

    Hahahahaha. One day after Chump and Argentine prez Macri denied that Chump had asked Macri to intervene in Chump’s problems with his Buenos Aires building project, the builders suddenly announced they were moving ahead full speed, LOL. One day later, LOL.

    Chump now claims that the US president can never have a conflict of interest.

  4. Jeffery says:

    Pravda’s FOX’s Sean Hannity is calling for Pravda FOX to be the only “news” outlet for the Chumpunist Party.

  5. Jeffery says:

    Ruh-roh… Chumpy wants to investigate the alt-right?!?

    “I don’t want to energize the group (alt-right, white nationalists, neo-nazis, Covians etc), and I disavow the group.”

    “It’s not a group I want to energize, and if they are energized, I want to look into it and find out why.”

    Does he intend to investigate them? No, of course not. He was just lying to the New York Times. Cnumpy can’t help but lie.

    Chumpy craves either of two responses from his audiences – abject fear or unthinking adoration. He is a loving god-king, unless you displease him.

    Your reaction to Trump…calling him a lair etc….personal attacks is exactly what the right did to Obama and guess how that ended up………2 terms….and a 55 percent approval rating….

    Thanks for the effort….keep the attacks coming….we enjoy your tirades over a democrat that is more likely to work with you then with anyone on the right after he sees how obstructionist the Whack job GOP is that are inhabiting the government these days.

    They cant wait to do nothing for 6 years so that all the new members get that government lifetime gravy train flowing………

    Trump wont last a year….He will be impeached by a GOP and Democratic congress….both who hate his guts….Which is just as well….Then we get Mike Pence who actually knows how to govern.

    I just could not stomach HRC….Mark my words…ONE YEAR…Perhaps less….and trump will be impeached and removed from office…..Remember the GOP in the government hates him as much as the Democrats do….Trump is a total baffoon if he thinks he can do whatever he pleases and be protected by a GOP majority on the government.

  8. Jeffery says:


    I largely agree with you regarding Trump. It is possible if not likely he’ll be impeached by the House based on his corrupt business practices. If he survives two years he’ll likely face a Dem House majority. Indeed Trump might even desire impeachment as it makes him a victim, gives him more publicity (his early mentor, Joe McCarthy’s Roy Cohn, counseled him that all publicity was good for business), and absolves him of governing. He never really expected nor desired to govern. Pence’s policy prescriptions are at least as bad as Trump’s, but he is an honest and decent man, if anathema to liberals. Trump is a crook and a thug.

    Clinton was never my first choice but her policies aligned with mine compared to any Republican.

  9. Jeffery says:


    The difference between Trump vs Obama attacks is that the attacks on Trump are true.

    Obama started out popular and stayed that way. Trump didn’t begin with that advantage.

    Conservatives believe they should be able to spout their vile bullshit without criticism. Making things even worse is that much of what conservatives believe to be true is actually false. In addition their arguments are typically one layer deep – they spout a talking point then rest their case. They get frustrated and angry when challenged. The articles are about how you deal with an angry, sputtering con shouting about conspiracies, communists, hoaxes, Clintons etc.

  11. Liam Thomas says:

    Not really and the attacks to Obama were true as well…Hes a communist who pals around with known terrorists who got off on a technicality. He said no lobbyists influence then doled out trillions to is special interest buddies….I could go on and on….No Obama deserved every fuking word of what was thrown at him….but unlike Trump he had the absolute support of the democrats….where trump will have almost NO support on the right or at least not enough to give them that 60 vote threshold.

    Obama…well He had almost no idea how to govern unlike Trump who has lots of experience is running things….especially big things…….at one time Obama’s numbers were in the low 30’s….then HRC vs Trump happened and suddenly Obama looked like a winner….when he was still the huge loser he had always been.

    The problem is that both parties have him exactly where they want him….the first big Trump ego fit…will land him in impeachment……With enough NEVER TRUMPERS on the right to land him in impeachment pokie.

  12. Jeffery says:

    Obama has never been below 45% favorable, even in the midst of the right-wing shittyfit over the ACA. Trump has never been above 40%. You can look it up on RealClearPolitics.

    Obama is a communist who pals around with terrorists, LOL. You say a lot of stupid shit but that’s the stupidest. Obama’s problems with the right are twofold – he’s a liberal Democrat and a Negro, with being a lib the most relevant.

    Both the left and the right use extraneously issues to attack politicians whose policies they oppose, and some followers actually end up believing the lies.

  13. Liam Thomas says:

    My bad 42 percent in august 2010.

    You say a lot of stupid shit

    I agree Jeffery you do say a lot of stupid shit….Nothing coming out of your mouth makes sense most of the time.

    and some followers actually end up believing the lies.

    Exactly!! Youve drank the koolaid brother…..the whole pitcher.
