Magazine Calls For Trump Haters To Ruin Thanksgiving for Trump Supporting Family Members

Trump ThanksGiving

GQ’s Joe Berkowitz issued a call-to-action on Tuesday for anyone with a Trump-supporting family this Thanksgiving: “consider making life hell for a few of your relatives.”

“It’s time to ruin your Trump-supporting family’s Thanksgiving — for America!” Berkowitz wrote.

“This year, if you’re headed home to a household that still thinks a sex-offending game show host in rapid cognitive decline was the best choice for a president, it is your civic duty to filibuster Thanksgiving,” Berkowitz added.

Berkowitz offered three techniques for how to ruin a Trump-supporter’s Thanksgiving.

His first suggestion is for anti-Trumpers to simply disassociate entirely from their pro-Trump families this Thanksgiving.

“For some parents, your absence will speak louder than any sodden arguments over the density of pumpkin pie,” Berkowitz commented. “If you can’t even look them in the eye, they’ll know you mean business.”

For anyone who has the courage to engage in conversation with their pro-Trump family, Berkowitz recommends showing up and being “kind of an asshole.”

“No hugs; only stiff, formal handshakes. During the football game, talk about police brutality nonstop. Take any opportunity to emphasize just how much Bruce Springsteen and the entire E Street band loathes Trump,” Berkowitz stated.

And finally, for those filled with “righteous fury,” Berkowitz recommends going full-on “scorched earth.”

“Not even a handshake; just stare, disgustedly, at their outstretched arms,” Berkowitz wrote.

Berkowitz said these techniques were “more than just spite,” but is also “about potentially chipping away at the ~35 percent of un-budging Trump supporters.”

“Having a son or daughter loathe everything you’ve become is easier long distance; it’s another thing when that kid is staring turkey-carving daggers at you from across the table.”

However, even with all GQ author’s advice, a recent NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll indicates that a majority of Americans would prefer to pass on politics this Thanksgiving.

The poll found that 58 percent of Americans “dread the thought of having to talk about politics at Thanksgiving dinner.”

And Twitter was split on the issue, with some saying Berkowitz’ advice was beyond petty, and others saying he was on the money.

…And they go on and on. Berkowitz concluded his article by adding that Thanksgiving was just one of the many opportunities to ruin a Trump-supporter’s holiday.

“If your family is unmoved after a ruined Thanksgiving, though, that’s fine too,” he wrote. “After all, next year’s Thanksgiving falls just after the 2018 midterms, and if your true believer parents still feel the way they do now, you might ruin their holiday in another way.”
