Michael Moore Extends the Olive Branch to Thanksgiving Tables Across America
This Thanksgiving, you're likely to break bread with a family member who, to your horror, voted for the other major party candidate. Fortunately, one swing state voter from Flint, Michigan has a few tips for how to successful handle encounters like these.
"l think sitting at that Thanksgiving table, the thing to do is for all of us to agree that there we have more in common than not," Michael Moore, director of the new documentary "Michael Moore in Trumpland" told MSNBC.
The filmmaker then suggested, we make a list of the things we care about and allow both sides the discussion they deserve.
"We want great schools for kids, we want to breathe clean air, we do believe the polar ice caps are melting, women, if they're doing the same job as men should be paid the same amount of money," Moore listed as examples.
"We agree on more of these things [than not] and the things that we don't agree on, whether its guns or abortion or gay marriage... let's have the great debate and whoever wins it, wins it," the Flint filmmaker said.
