WATCH: Fox’s Chris Wallace Offers Hilarious Thanksgiving Family Debate Tips on Colbert’s ‘Late Show’


“You may know me from your parents’s TV when you go home to do laundry,” said FOX News Channel anchor Chris Wallace to open a clip from The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Wallace was a guest on the show Monday night, after his big weekend interview with President Donald Trump, and the show released the Thanksgiving skit on Youtube.

“Thanksgiving dinner can be a recipe for arguments,” reads the promo, “so we got Fox News anchor, Chris Wallace, to give us some tips for moderating your Turkey Day debates.”

“I’m used to moderating presidential debates and political round-tables, but there is nothing more combative than the Thanksgiving dinner table,” says Wallace in the clip. “So I’m here to share my Thanksgiving dinner moderating tips, to keep things from getting too rowdy at this year’s family gathering.”

It’s become a political trope in the last few years to offer advice for dealing with relatives with different political views after the Obama’s OFA released a guide on how to discuss Obamacare with your jerk uncle, or something. But Wallace’s advice is much better than theirs.

For example, “if your family is fighting about whether to serve roasted turkey or fried turkey, just go ahead and serve them Wild Turkey, until they’re too drunk to argue,” advised Wallace. It’s funny, but it also makes you think.

“Do not let people leave the table without saying, ‘Excuse me’ or ‘Freedom of the press is a cornerstone of our democracy,” was another awesome tip.

The best advice was to baste your turkey with extra tryptophan. “They’ll be napping on the couch before anyone can chant ‘Lock her up’,” he said.

The bottom line is that you should drug your family for Thanksgiving, which I think is something the left and right can all agree on.
