He says MAGA. She says covfefe. This year has been all about politics, so why not roll with that come holiday gift time? Some ideas for your red and blue staters:

Shop the playlists of the year's political players, but does Trump listen to music?
Back during the campaign, candidate Trump told The New York Times he was fond of the 1969 Peggy Lee hit "Is that All There Is?" Written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller of Elvis, "Hound Dog" and "Jailhouse Rock" fame, the song ticks off a series of letdowns, from a house fire to a circus that apparently wasn't up to snuff to love lost, with a chorus that goes like this:
"Is that all there is?
Is that all there is?
If that's all there is my friends, then let's keep dancing
Let's break out the booze and have a ball
If that's all there is"
In the alternative, how about a good polka from Slovenia?
For blue staters: President Barack Obama represents. Back in August 2015, the Obama White House hopped onto Spotify and served up Barack's handpicked summer playlists, one for day and one for night. They're killer.
His top five for sunlight: "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" by The Temptations; "Live It Up" by The Isley Brothers; "Memories Live" by Talib Kweli and Hi Tek; "Tombstone Blues" by Bob Dylan; and "So Much Trouble in the World" by Bob Marley.
After-hours at the top: "My Favorite Things" by John Coltrane; "Superpower (feat. Frank Ocean)" by Beyonce; "Moondance" by Van Morrison; "Is Your Love Big Enough?" by Lianne La Havas; and "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" by Al Green.
As for Clinton, she's a Bey fan, telling Rolling Stone back in February 2016: "I want to be as good a president as Beyonce is a performer."
