Every year, liberals seek to destroy holidays with political talking points trashing Republicans. This year, unfortunately, is no different. On Sunday, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., issued a tweet asking followers to ruin Thanksgiving dinner with talk about the GOP tax plan.
“Bring this chart to Thanksgiving dinner. It’ll come in handy when that family member who always talks politics tells you the Republican tax bill helps the middle class,” he tweeted.

“Sorry, Chuck, but most people don’t want to ruin their family’s Thanksgiving by starting a political fight,” the Daily Caller said.
Schumer wasn’t finished, following up with this tweet that included a photo of Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and his wife posing at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing:

The Washington Examiner reported:
The chart, which is based on estimates from Congress’ nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation, partly reflects that the individual tax breaks would phase out over time in the Senate tax bill, a legislative workaround Republicans used to lower the revenue losses of the tax cuts on paper.
GOP leaders have said that they intend for the tax cuts to be made permanent in future years. “That’s not our policy,” Trump budget director Mick Mulvaney said of the temporary cuts Tuesday morning in a Fox Business interview. “That’s simply the way to try to shoehorn the bill into these arcane rules in the Senate.”
As for the unflattering photo of Mnuchin, the treasury secretary brushed off the commentary about it Sunday. “I guess that I should take that as a compliment, that I look like a villain in a great, successful James Bond movie,” he said on “Fox News Sunday.”
Naturally, this didn’t sit too well with quite a few Twitter users.
Sorry chuck we don’t have maids to clean and prep for Thanksgiving. No time to print your chart. Stop giving benefits to non citizens and maybe our taxes won’t be so high. School tax is bulk of tax in area. 👎🏼

Another person added: “I’m showing up with this one. It’s clear DC needs one big audit, drained, and term limits. Apparently transparency is a load of crap to (politicians) and feel they should live by a separate set of rules and laws then the rest of us.”

One person told Schumer that they would have more if it weren’t for high taxes:
So you want Americans across this great country to mix Thanksgiving, a day of family, goodwill and thankfulness with your corrupt Democrat propaganda chart.

Better yet, maybe Schumer should just go away and take his propaganda with him.
“Good job, Chuckles. Way to de-escalate Bird Day tensions by adding a molotov cocktail to the equation,” said a post at Louder with Crowder, adding:
We already have to deal with lengthy lectures about the atrocities committed against the red man. On top of the shade we get for not being “with her” last year. Half the time, you and your lefty relative are two seconds away from cracking each other’s skulls with turkey legs. Fighting over the wishbone… to wish away the patriarchy.
Most of us are happy to put politics aside for one day. Watch some football. Eat some bird. Try to tolerate cousin Gaylord, who can’t stop talking about his fair-trade hemp cardigan and the gas mileage of his new Tesla. Everyone hates you.
“Give it a rest, Chuckie,” the post said in conclusion.
