Trump Just Used The Pardoning Of A Turkey To Attack President Obama, Is NOTHING Sacred??

Continuing a time-honored White House tradition, Donald Trump pardoned the national Thanksgiving turkey in a Rose Garden ceremony Tuesday, his first, and hopefully his last.

A turkey named “Drumstick” won the title of America’s National Thanksgiving Turkey Tuesday morning, the White House announced. His alternate “Wishbone” was also spared.

After the ceremony, the two will live out their lives at Virginia Tech University at a place called Gobbler’s Rest, where their predecessors Tater and Tot live.

Trump then made an awkward joke about his history of reversing former President Barack Obama’s executive actions, saying, “I have been informed by the White House counsel’s office that Tater and Tot’s pardons cannot be revoked.”
