Foer’s response to the political turmoil experienced because of the 2016 Presidential campaign is an arena, where there is a lull in the fighting. The battle is fought with Tweets. She comments, “I am always interested in Americans’ anxiety about how to talk to “the other side, . . . I read many advice columns about how to deal with “drunk uncle” at a holiday gathering which led to the title Weapons Left on the Field. Each faction is not changing its opinion, merely calling a ceasefire to accommodate family and friends from an opposing political spectrum at Thanksgiving. I include memes and slogans from Russia, Iran, the UN, Israel and the Occupied Territories, aka Palestine to emphasize the far-ranging influences on our recent election and the implications for its outcome.”
