This is a personal plea to families everywhere: Please, for everyone’s sanity, don’t talk about politics this Thanksgiving. We could all use a break. Trump voters, no one wants to hear your impassioned (read: drunken) speech about grabbing guns and running to protect the border. And Clinton voters, this isn’t an Aaron Sorkin scene where you tell your relatives they’re stupid, and they’ll want to listen because you’re the witty liberal. So for just one night, let’s all enjoy each other’s company, stuff ourselves stupid and watch football players give themselves concussions for our amusement. It’s a small request, and tomorrow we can all go back to screaming into our Facebook bubbles until Christmas.
