If you’re hoping for a harmonious Thanksgiving dinner in the current political climate, it might be an idea to avoid certain topics, according to Stephen Colbert.
“Another beloved Thanksgiving tradition is stronger than ever: arguing at the dinner table,” pointed out The Late Show host, referencing a 2017 Pew Research Center study that suggests Americans are more divided along party lines than ever.
“So, I would avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion, sports, movies, and how much voter I.D. you need to buy cereal,” said Colbert.
“Also, for god’s sake, do not open up the yam/sweet potato debate,” he added, before diving right into the yam/sweet potato debate.
