This afternoon:

Senator Roy Blunt @RoyBlunt
This year’s Thanksgiving will be the most expensive in the holiday’s history. On top of that, Missourians will be paying more to even get to the Thanksgiving table. [….]

Some of the responses:

Nope. U should actually go shopping instead of repeating nonsense. I bought my turkey for 79 cents a pound and saw turkeys for half off. Also, gas prices are coming down and store shelves are filling up thanks to POTUS. Maybe do ur job and legislate not obstruct.

You have forgotten that Thanksgiving 2020 Americans spent hours getting COVID tests, if they could get to a testing site. There wasn’t a vaccine.

In 2021, 60% of Republicans aren’t vaccinated, making the pandemic longer.

I am grateful to spend Thanksgiving with the vaccinated

Did the new .13 per gal tax levied by Parson & the Republican state legislators do anything but add to the financial burden? Forget about that?

The Missouri GOP raised gas prices through a tax increase on gasoline. Missouri deserves better than Republican super majority.

I got a free 15lb turkey from Ibotta, free stuffing, free pie, free vegetables, free cranberry, free gravy. Turkeys in my area are .47 lb. Seems to me you just might be making your way on to the naughty list by lying to your constituents

Where do you shop Neiman Marcus? Ours wasn’t expensive at all.

Just so you know, I bought a frozen turkey for $.49 a pound. Also, ALL shelves are stocked.

Would you please share with us how much you and your family spent on Thanksgiving last year and how much this year?

You think it’s written off as a lobbying expense? Just asking.

The free market is a bitch, ain’t it.

Chevron & Exxon profits doubled. Hmmm [….]

Walmart disagrees.

That mean you will vote for BBB? Helping your constituents live better? Supporting their healthcare, childcare, elder care? Putting a cap on insulin? Or no.


yes, it cost us 800,000 of our loved ones, friends and neighbors due to misdirection on a deadly virus

Yeah remember last year when there was a raging pandemic, we had a President in complete denial and none of us spent the holidays with our loved ones?

We get it, inflation is the Republican talking point. My talking point is gratitude. I am grateful for Thanksgiving 2021, which will be with vaccinated family and friends. Thanksgiving 2020: Covid was raging, people were dying and Trump was lying. [….]

Imagine if Trump Senators like Blunt had taken COVID seriously and loudly encouraged vaccines and masks.
We could have been back to normal a year ago.

Oh bullshit. Am I paying a slightly higher price for groceries, yes. Is it the most expensive thanksgiving ever? Absolutely not, at least this year I’m not watching family members die from Covid that Republicans prefered to ignore.

You already tweeted this, we already explained how you’re a disingenuous piece of shit, so how about you shut up so we can all enjoy our holiday?

Yea life was so much better when everyone was locked in their homes trying not to catch covid instead of driving their cars driving cost of fuel to historic lows. If only we had an incompetent fucking useless president again so he could botch his response to a global pandemic.

They ain’t buying it, Roy.
