It’s been awhile.
Trae Crowder, the comedian who happily answers to “Liberal Redneck,” hasn’t posted a video for several months.
Fortunately, he’s back with a caustic new message about Donald Trump just days before Thanksgiving.
In short, he thinks it’s time for everyone to accept what happened and try to understand why it happened.
“Right now,” says Crowder, “in this moment in this America, do you really feel like [it] matters who’s right and who’s wrong? Cause it don’t.”
What matters right now is who won and who lost. And there ain’t no debating that part, baby. So we can keep shoving our heads up our high horse’s asses all we want, acting like there ain’t shit for us to learn about what just happened, but as long as we do that, we ain’t no better than a climate change denier who gets dickslapped with evidence and goes ‘ah well it was cold on Easter – fuck the grandkids anyway’. We ain’t no better. And as long as we do that we will continue to lose.”
He also offers a few pointers as to how we should negotiate that awkward Thanksgiving dinner conversation with that uppity uncle who supports Trumps.
What’re you gonna do? You’re gonna throw gravy in his stupid old face? Tell him to shove the turkey baster up his ass? That ain’t no way to act. It’s a problem I’d love to have by the way. Both my papaws are dead and gone, all right? Both somewhat racist, both probably would have voted for Trump. Still miss ’em. Still give anything to be able to get drunk on dressing with ’em on Thursday. I loved ’em in spite of that shit. Ain’t that how it’s supposed to work…?”
“Just take a deep breath and remind yourself, we’re all still in this house together. And we all still gotta eat.”
