It’s the gift no one asked for and yet everyone — even Planned Parenthood — insists on giving. It’s the guide to talking politics with your relatives over Thanksgiving dinner.
Last year, Hillary Clinton, the DNC, ThinkProgress, Vox, Josh Earnest and Alan Grayson offered tips for ruining the holiday, although an A for effort has to go to Moms Demand Action and its 2013 offering of printable placemats of firearms statistics to get families “Talking Turkey About Guns” while eating dinner.

Thanks for the heads up on how my sister is going to ruin dinner with her petulant political whining. @nytpolitics

Of course the New York Times couldn’t resist contributing something. Its handy list of election facts, brought to you by the same folks who on Election Day predicted Hillary Clinton had an 82 percent chance of winning, will give you all the information you need to rehash the worst day of every Democrat’s year. Was anything left out?
@nytpolitics you conveniently forgot the biggest fact that Mr. Trump won.

@nytpolitics Fact #1. Trump won in an electoral landslide. Fact #2 nothing else matters now.

@iowahawkblog From what I understand, if more people had voted for Hillary she would have won.

@nytpolitics Additional fact: Dems lost the WH, Senate, House, & huge majority of Governors & State Legislatures… and faith of the voters.

@nytpolitics If you argue politics with a printout form the NYT at a family holiday gathering, *you're* the jackass.
