A few days before the election, Dash Katz’s Catholic grandmother was — as you’ll see — willing to talk about anything but politics.  Herewith a 4-minute abridgment of their exceptionally human 37-minute conversation: “What It Took To Flip My 90-Year-Old Grandma Blue.”  Where did this young man find the patience?  Hats off to him — and to her.

It’s no magic template for converting Trumpers.  Trumpers don’t all have tearful gay grandsons they adore.  Many probably like that Trump threatens trans people (though 56 companies, like Coke and Apple, do not).  Probably applaud his anti-LGBT achievements.

But it’s yet another example that when the conversation can be made personal between people of opposing views, good things can happen.
