TURNING THE TABLES
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.
