    Who has angry relatives who hate Trump?

    My stepson, his former wife, and his sister and her husband , and me of course, went to enjoy a nice Italian dinner tonight.
    Rick is my stepdaughter's husband and we have known each other for many decades.
    In the past we have never at any point discussed politics.

    He was commenting at dinner how we need illegal aliens and lauded the Mexicans and Asians he says he sees a lot.
    I asked him if he therefore likes the Biden open border policy. Right off he got pissed. Told me Biden has a closed border policy. All of you know for a fact that is not true. We know Biden in a short 10 months has spread all over America illegal aliens swept up by his administration. We know Governors are complaining.

    Rick attacked Trump over the Border wall calling it worthless. Told me it is falling down. I am serious here. Supposedly a state of Art fence with all kinds of electronics on it is now falling down? In 10 short months?

    Anyway, I could not get a word in edgewise with him ranting so I dropped the issue.

    Do you guys catch hell from friends or relatives too?

    I will see Rick tomorrow when he and my stepdaughter comes here for dinner. I will not speak to him on political issues partly out of not wanting our day to be ruined.

    There is no reasoning with the democrat left, they have totally lost it.

    I was at the receptions for my friend's daughter's wedding a number of years ago, I think during Bush. At the end my friend's wife tears into me about Republicans and Bush and everything they had done wrong. I had never said a word to her about my politics, never. I didn't say anything that day either, I didn't think it was the place. I am not sure how she knew what party I belonged to other then I wasn't a raving lunatic.

    90% of Democraps will never change their minds, in fact CANNOT change their minds.

    They are too ill-informed, too uneducated, and are ill-equipped to form a cogent argument to support their case.

    I tend to doubt Rick will keep this up when he shows up tomorrow for dinner here.
    I told him I got his point that I had myself for decades been a loyal Democrat. He hardly knew how to handle me then. I get the anger by Democrats. I recall them being angry at Reagan, Angry at Bush I and later at Bush 11. Anger at Trump was not news to me.

    YES.

    My son married a wonderful young lady. She is a great wife to him and a wonderful mother. She loves my son very much, so I keep that in mind when I go to family functions there, and know I will be in conversations with her democrat parents and siblings.....

    I have to totally keep my mouth shut out of love for my son. He is pretty conservative, has a top secret clearance and works on a naval base doing cybersecurity for Homeland Security. But he has learned to never talk politics to his inlaws so I follow his lead.

    But all kinds of things go through my head that I want to say when they start bashing Trump, so I go and play with the grandkids, who have more sense than these adults.

    Sadly that is very true.

    Well done and well explained. Thanks.

    Two brothers and a sister have pretty much disowned me because I voted for Donald Trump...twice.

    Now?

    They don't want to talk to me because they voted for Joe Biden.
    You're only as good as your last performance.

    I don't allow anyone in my family to bash Trump in my presence. So, I don't see them or speak to them. They cannot control themselves.
    Unwavering loyalty for my President, Donald J Trump
