My favorite part of Saturday Night Live this past weekend was the list of things that will anger the Republican base. Here it is as a handy list you can take with you to Thanksgiving dinner!

The best segment of Saturday Night Live this past weekend, in my opinion, was Weekend Update's list of things that make Republican's mad. (starting at 3:14)

COLIN JOST: Republicans plan to use the liberal opposition to Brett Kavanaugh to stoke anger among the GOP base ahead of the midterm elections. But if that doesn't work, they can always fire up their base by saying any of the following things.

And then with the Twisted Sisters rock anthem, "We're Not Gonna Take It" playing in the background, SNL scrolls two sets of all the things your crazy Uncle Liberty is likely to be angry about this Thanksgiving. (Points off for not mentioning New Black Panther Party.)

Let's hope crazy Uncle Liberty is so upset about the midterm results that he actually shuts up and eats his stuffing. And here's a handy re-printing of the list to take with you to dinner if you just wanna troll him.
