Your DGB for this Throwback Thursday is to refresh your memory on how to talk about politics over your mom’s green bean casserole.
It’s been almost a year now since that first turkey day after The Election That Shall Not Be Named, when the wound was oh-so-fresh and so was our desire to leap across the table and stab Aunt Mildred with a fork for her Trump vote. It’s been a fun year, huh? [cue hysterical laughter] The feelings of shock may have faded, but now we have a laundry list of ways the Trump administration has been every bit the nightmare we feared, plus a few we didn’t see coming. And many of us STILL have to break bread this holiday season with the MAGA crowd. So it’s a good idea to remind ourselves how to have discussions that might make a real impact.
The staff here at Daily Grab Back will be doing the same. And we will be counting our blessings, not the least of which are all you Grabbers who take the time to make a difference - thank you. As for you, Aunt Mildred? You’re still on our naughty list.
