We’re so old we remember a time when you and your co-workers or family members could belong to different political parties and still, say, sit down to Thanksgiving dinner without first downloading and printing placemats with gun-control talking points on them.

We’ve covered Nation contributor Sean McElwee before — he’s the guy who called “a Christmas Present to all of us” the worst Christmas Eve trading day ever on Wall Street, because “rich people are losing a s**tload of money today.” So we know where he’s coming from.

Now he’s encouraging his followers to “make it painful” for any Republicans who’ve managed to infiltrate their social circle.

Um, he knows those photos of kids in cages were taken during the Obama administration, right? Probably not.
