MSNBC’s Chris Hayes says President Trump should drop his concerns of voter fraud and instead work on coordinating “messaging all over the place about making Thanksgiving virtual this year”:
Right now, if we had a administration that cared one whit about protecting Americans there would be national coordinated messaging all over the place about making Thanksgiving virtual this year (or outdoors where weather permits)! But there is none because they don't care.

For starters, threatening to cancel Thanksgiving is a non-starter for millions of Americans and that risks the same sort of backlash we saw early in the pandemic. Zoom gatherings just won’t cut it:
Communists destroy the family because it conflicts with allegiance to the state.
Thanksgiving is a family holiday.
Democrats like @chrislhayes hate America and holidays like Thanksgiving that celebrate it.

And the messaging from Hayes and others misses what we saw with our own eyes days ago. We can’t have a Thanksgiving with family and friends but Biden street parties were A-OK?

Literally no one cares because y’all were celebrating in the streets this past weekend. GTFOH with your feigned concern over coronavirus. The mask came off and we know it’s a political cudgel. https://t.co/ov72G90dcD

Go back & look at recent celebrations in the street. Then shut up. You can’t have it both ways Chris. https://t.co/OVuPMlSuf6

How about if we promise not to drink from the same bottle of wine. Then can we have Thanksgiving in person, Chris?
Thousands can dance in the streets and drink from communal bottles but your grandpa is just gonna have to spend the holidays alone eating a tv dinner. https://t.co/jNRYWDhYdw

When Biden talks about a Zoom-only inauguration, get back to us:
Our Thanksgiving should be every bit as virtual as liberal protests and celebrations. https://t.co/4DAd4Aagt7

And we’ll end it with this:
i think i speak for a great deal of america when i say:
"chris, go soak your head."
