What is Thanksgiving all about, if not publicly humiliating your elderly relatives? “The Daily Show” producer Brandon Stefanowitz really embraced that yesterday when he posted this photo of his Trump-supporting grandfather for the sole purpose of mocking him:
My grandfather is sporting what he thinks is a MAGA hat. Little does he know this accessory is completely against what he believes in when it comes to politics/climate change ??♂️ pic.twitter.com/ZXxIPj4VB9

Here’s a screenshot, just in case he deletes:
Yeah, get a load of that silly old man!
Oh my gawd this is hilarious

And Molly has an excellent sense of humor, so she knows.
While I agree with the message it's kinda messed up to use your Grandpa as a retweet icon for something he doesn't even realize he's signing on to….

He actually knew and was cool with this lol.

Yeah, lighten up, guys.
What kind of lame grandpa wouldn’t be cool with his grandson publicly shaming him on Twitter?
Good one ???

I love taking advantage of the elderly! It’s so easy to trick them. This rocks!

Kind of disrespectful to your grandfather.

Not very respectful to your grandfather.
I despise Trump with the fire of 1,000 suns.

This is horribly cruel. Stop it.

Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but I would be less eager to humiliate my elderly grandfather and post the proof of it online thus demonstrating to the world what a terrible person I am. pic.twitter.com/WGb7Xm4eXW
