Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful, remember the ugly truth of the holiday, and—for many people—survive an uncomfortable meal with your racist relatives. But Saturday Night Live demonstrates that there’s something to unite us no matter our viewpoints.

The table is set, the drinks are flowing, the fuses are short, and the racism, xenophobia, and transphobia are rampant as a dysfunctional family passes around plates of food. But once Adele’s “Hello” starts to play, the faux-fur coats and hair start flowing.

If anyone can shut down any argument, it’s her.

Now can we test this out during the next presidential debate?
