Just had an hour long phone call with my mom.

She thinks liberals hate the constitution, hate freedom, they are the real racists, thinks covid numbers are inflated, then invites me up for Thanksgiving.  Then my brother calls me that she's upset I won't go because of politics.

She did say she would read articles I sent her, as long as they come from an "unbiased source".  So I'm writing up a hail mary email of basically Fark headlines.  She hasn't even seen any of his tweets, or any of his press conferences.  I'm at the end of my rope here.  She watches Fox and reads WND.

Just venting because, god I don't know what to do any more.

I'm really sorry. People wrap their entire world views around things all the time. Sometimes they wrap them around something awful and can't see why folks don't get it.

I don't have any advice on what to do with your folks. I stopped talking to my family 11 years ago.

Good point. I wonder how he will go off on his intel agencies because they declared this Russion propaganda. I bet we will hear a lot about that. It was released after his presser yesterday. It might be the only reason for today.

Dude, so many of us are in the same boat. My mom and her husband are almost the same (they're not doing WND).

I could go on and on but I'm trying to preserve the relationship because I don't have many other close relationships through this pandemic.

I'm considering taking advantage of our company's telehealth but am afraid the whole thing would just get me preached to about substance abuse.

I'll watch it once I get off work, but the problem is I DO understand the mindset because I lived it into my mid-twenties.  I understand it completely, and the way I broke away from it.  But, I've tried the same method with my mom and it just has no effect.  It took me a good 6+ years to transition.
