TURN­ING THE TA­BLES

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - NEWS -

Mike Mower con­sid­ered set­ting up three ta­bles at the Thanks­giv­ing lunch he and his wife were host­ing for a large group in Salt Lake City, Utah: one for Trump sup­port­ers, one for Clin­ton sup­port­ers and one for back­ers of in­de­pen­dent can­di­date Evan McMullin.

But Mower, a long­time Repub­li­can and deputy chief of staff for Utah Gov. Gary Her­bert, tweeted that there were too many Clin­ton sup­port­ers to go for­ward with that plan.

His wife over­ruled the plans for sep­a­rate seat­ing any­way, declar­ing that peo­ple would mix de­spite political af­fil­i­a­tions. They did, how­ever, in­ten­tion­ally put their el­dest daugh­ter, a 23-year-old lib­eral who lives in Brook­lyn, far from her grand­fa­ther, an 86-yearold Trump sup­porter.

One son, a political sci­ence ma­jor and Clin­ton sup­porter, wanted to make the pie a rep­re­sen­ta­tive chart show­ing Clin­ton won more of the pop­u­lar vote.

“I told him ‘We’re not us­ing dessert for political pos­tur­ing,’” said Mower, laugh­ing.
