First Rule For Having a Fun Thanksgiving: Go with canned cranberry sauce instead of the homemade variety.

Second Rule For Having a Fun Thanksgiving: Don't talk about politics.

Third Rule For Having a Fun Thanksgiving: When Uncle Bill inevitably breaks rule two, be prepared.

Read up on your talking points for your debate with Uncle Bill at the dinner table. Know the difference and show discretion by steering the topic away to something pleasant.

Trump is utterly unfit to serve as president. He is exactly the person the founders had in mind when they wrote impeachment into the Constitution. But you can't argue with Uncle Bill. His reality is fakebelieve.

On Russia: Uncle Bill may insist that Trump is not guilty of anything more than trying to make America great again. Let him enjoy his fakebelieve.

On the GOP tax cuts: Yes, republicans are cutting taxes. But they're rewriting tax code so changes in deductions will more than offset the cuts, resulting in a 2% higher tax bill for most taxpayers. The 2% increase affects middle class spending that creates the demand and supply for services and goods met with more jobs. It is just enough to stagnate the slow but steady growth of the GDP. But leave Uncle Bill to stew in his crabbyberry sauce.

Above all, at Thanksgiving, remember this: We're all in this together, and Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate the things that bind us together as family and as Americans.

Happy Thanksgiving!
