The election of Donald Trump has already cost people promising relationships and invitations to exclusive holiday parties, so it’s no surprise that the ripples from Nov. 8 are being seen in greeting cards as well.
For example, when you receive your annual greeting card from Peter Beinart, contributing editor at The Atlantic, you might want to hang it up a little higher out of reach of the young ones, or sneak it behind something a little more tame on the refrigerator door.

@PeterBeinart How can I be added to your mailing list? Would look great on any refrigerator this holiday season.

Who says people have lost sight of the reason for the season?
@PeterBeinart Somehow Bah Humbug just doesn't cut it this year.

@PeterBeinart Why do you hate Kwanzaa?

It’s just a phase, certainly.
@PeterBeinart We've been getting that holiday card from pundits and journalists for quite some time now.

@PeterBeinart Are you on your period today? Such a beacon of hope. I bet you're a fun one at home.

@PeterBeinart Civility… Imagine if a journalist had tweeted that in December 2008. He'd be justifiably drummed out of the profession.

@PeterBeinart what does this mean? why the mean vulgarity? I thought professors sought to uplift language and culture?

.@PeterBeinart Peter, didn't they ever teach you grammar? "F U, America," as you so sophisticatedly put it, takes a comma. Direct address.

@PeterBeinart – Don't try to pass it off as a joke. It wasn't. Disgraceful. Sorry you're butt hurt but it's life. No need for crassness…

@PeterBeinart Oh honey, it is going to be a long 8 years for you snowflakes. Going to be fun to watch your meltdowns.
