“Thanksgiving 2021 is shaping up to be the most expensive meal in the history of the holiday.”

Bah, humbug.

Some of the responses:

Last year we had no Thanksgiving celebration thanks to pandemic. 3 of us in my family made food and delivered to high risk friends. This year we will have over 20 for dinner. So thankful. Also, the company I work for having a record breaking sales year despite cost increases.

I sincerely doubt it. But then, I plan ahead like any frugal person banking against fluctuations in pricing. I buy on sale and freeze it. Have turkey and cranberries in the freezer.

That’s ok. Last Thanksgiving I was praying my immunosuppressed brother would survive.

And you have had a major starring role in causing this.

Good thing you gave those tax breaks to billionaires a few years ago though. Now they can afford Thanksgiving!

Yep, Roy, things are more expensive. Tell us what your role in that was and what you’re doing (or not doing) to remedy that.

Umm, you do realize THANKSgiving is not about food, right?

That is Capitalism 101 at work- supply and demand.

Senator Blunt, share with us the cost of YOUR Thanksgiving dinner last year to this year’s cost?

Explain the hardship this is causing you and your family this year.

What’s your point? I’ve had 2 adult children survive Covid without being hospitalized (pre-Delta & pre-vaccines) and we’re all fully vaccinated now. I have more than enough to be thankful for. We don’t need to eat ourselves into oblivion to be happy.

The reason for the season…

Will your cook have to purchase less food?

Blunt longs for the good ol’ pandemic days

Why do you think that is, Roy? Be truthful now. I know that’s a hard ask.

Why don’t you find something to be thankful for?

You’re not gonna starve, Roy.

It seems you prefer last year when the economy was in free fall? Or how about 2008 during the Great Republican Recession brought to you by Bush the Neverending War Mongerer? This year we have half the child poverty we had a year ago!Vaccines are here!War is over! I’m celebrating.

Congratulations. You’ve discovered inflation – even normal inflation.

Prices rise every year. This isn’t new.

What’s new is your pathetic partisan trolling.

Please consider retiring with dignity instead of this nonsense.

That ship sailed long ago.

Frankly, Roy, I’m just grateful to be alive. Y’all have done your best to kill us off. I don’t need or want a fancy meal. Take your fear mongering and shove it.

Actually, your Thanksgiving will be super-cheap, Roy, if you take my advice and eat shit.

Alrighty then.

Dinner’s on Roy.
