А вот еще из Атлантика

I’m here to tell you Thanksgiving is terrible, and if you at least spend the time trying to deprogram your niece, you won’t be bored or depressed (though you might be enraged that Fox News or Infowars has convinced her Trump can “save America” from Joe Biden’s radical agenda of giving people hearing aids and free pre-K).

Maybe it won’t work. Maybe you’ll leave Thanksgiving dinner as divided as you were when you sat down at the table five hours and 4,000 calories ago. Or maybe you’ll plant the seed, sow just a little doubt about whatever Tucker Carlson is saying now. Maybe you’ll even change a heart or a mind. Maybe you’ll bring the temperature down just a tiny bit. Or maybe you’ll need to report a relative to the FBI! Either way, it’s something to do besides just eat.

Автор тот же, Molly Jong-Fast. Они ее из Вокса переманили, что ли? Я там такое добро каждый год перед праздниками читаю, слово в слово практически. Интересная эволюция, Атлантик вроде был журналом для взрослых более или менее, хотя и для левых, а теперь вот это, с шутками про стук на родственников в ФБР. Точно как Вокс, источник знаний для young adults. Того и гляди начнут карточки с talking points публиковать.
