The White House is urging Americans to push pro-Biden propaganda onto conservative family members over Thanksgiving by publishing a “cheat sheet” list of talking points on the Democrat president’s “top accomplishments.”
Several Biden administration officials shared the talking points and urged people to parrot them to Republican voters.
The “cheat sheet” advises that the Americans repeat the claims from the list while “chatting with your uncle at Thanksgiving.”
Biden’s Chief of Staff Ron Klain referred to a conservative family member as “that uncle,” presumably suggesting they should be considered an outsider.
White Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre shared the tips and advised Americans to keep talking politics “across your dinner table, with this cheat sheet.”

Klain had also posted it on Twitter with his own caption, saying, “One last item for your Thanksgiving dinner: some talking points when ‘that Uncle’ comes ‘at you’ about @POTUS.”

The first point alleged that Biden had been “tackling inflation and lowering costs” — despite the fact that the price of a Thanksgiving dinner is up an average of 20 percent since last year.
Meanwhile, gas prices, though down considerably from their record-shattering peak, are still straining wallets nationwide.
The second point touted Biden’s moves to lower prescription drug costs, and point #3 outlined the bipartisan infrastructure deal.
The following points addressed the CHIPS and SCIENCE Act, recent gun control measures, and the economic progress that many Republicans argue was simply the natural result of businesses being allowed to reopen.
The final point on the “cheat sheet” calls Congressional Republicans “extreme” and accuses them of pushing for a full national abortion ban, trying to cut Social Security and Medicare, and “trying to raise costs on Americans by repealing the Inflation Reduction Act.”
Critics were not impressed by the talking points, however, and they made their thoughts known.

From NRO’s Isaac Schorr came the following: “My favorite family tradition is when we go around the table at Thanksgiving dinner, each of us enumerating our ‘top accomplishments’ in an effort to humiliate the others.”

“If things were going well, perhaps you wouldn’t need dishonest talking points to make it through Thanksgiving dinner …” Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) observed.
