What we’re talking about around the Thanksgiving table

Some of us can’t wait to go home and gather around the Thanksgiving table with our favorite people. Others dread sitting around the table because they know it will be yet another year of relatives arguing about politics, sports, and your sister’s new boyfriend she brought home for the holidays.

Want something different to talk about? We have a few ideas…

Here’s what House Republicans are talking about around our tables this year:

We’re definitely all talking about how Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK)’s daughters are twinning on every level for their 6th birthday.

All of us are trying to guess what Representative Steve King (R-IA) said to the presidential turkey during their one-on-one.

We’re celebrating the little things and using any excuse to have a grand old party.

We’re reminiscing about taking A Better Way on the road. What’s a trip to the Oregon Zoo without a photo shoot?


And what’s an adventurous life without an instagram feed to share your fun?

Everyone (well, except maybe the Ohio delegation) will be reveling in the Chicago Cubs’ historic victory in the World Series.

We can’t stop talking about the room named after Rep. Sam Johnson (R-TX) in honor of his commitment and service to our country. Speaker Paul Ryan said it best when he said, “Naming a room after him, it really doesn’t seem like enough, does it? I say he deserves the whole building.”

No matter what conversations you end up having around your table, we wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving.
