Thanksgiving is upon us, so you better pull out your stretchy pants.

Tomorrow, America will indulge in a cornucopia of delicious foods, from stuffing to pecan pie to that weird cranberry sauce from a can. Between bites of food, America will also have uncomfortable dinner table discussions about the election. FamousDC is here to provide you with a new, more fun conversation topic than the proposed border wall to Mexico.

We made a list of our favorite Thanksgiving dishes, and compared them to politicians. Because, why not?

Gravy: Donald Trump

Could make things really messy and not necessarily enjoyed by everyone at the table. You’re likely to find both somewhere in the kitchen (and maybe on Twitter) at 3 a.m.

Mashed Potatoes: Mike Pence


Both are white at the top. Both hate Hamilton the Musical. Often smothered by gravy (see above).

That can of cranberry sauce that, like, four guests bring to the dinner:  The four Mikes on Donald Trump’s transition team.


There are a lot of Mikes and there’s a lot of cranberry sauce – especially when sliced. Like the mashed potatoes, its space on the plate is often infiltrated by gravy.

Turkey: President Barack Obama


Because he’s about to be PARDONED from the presidency, and also because he’s the best thing on the table that will soon be gone.

Stuffing: Vice President Joe Biden


Stuffing does an excellent job supporting and adding flavor to the turkey, and is arguably the best dish at Thanksgiving.

Green Bean Casserole: Hillary Clinton


Claims to be good for you, but guests are skeptical. It just sits on the table, waiting for its turn to be picked.

Sweet Potato Casserole: Bernie Sanders


Its sweetness appeals to the #millennials.
