Watch Donald Trump pardon turkeys

Adjust Comment Print

President Donald Trump, who has raised eyebrows by mulling his power to pardon as investigators probe possible ties between his 2016 election campaign and Russian Federation, used his authority in a less controversial way on Tuesday to "pardon" a Thanksgiving turkey.

President Donald Trump is joined by girls from the Draper County, Minn., 4-H chapter (R), and First Lady Melania Trump and their son Barron, during the annual Thanksgiving Turkey Pardon in the Rose Garden in Washington on November 21, 2017.

The turkeys, Drumstick and Wishbone, arrived in Washington, D.C. on Sunday from Alexandria. The turkeys were raised in western Minnesota, and after the pardoning, the White House says the turkeys will join last year's lucky birds at "Gobblers Rest" at Virginia Tech.

"The argument was that the turkey had as good a right to live as any body else, and his plea was admitted and the turkey's life spared", Brooks wrote.

"As many of you know, I have been very active in overturning a number of executive actions by my predecessor", Trump quipped. "So Tater and Tot, you can rest easy". The 47 pound turkey's favorite band is Journey and has a "tall and proud" strut style, according to the White House.

President Donald Trump is using his pardon power to keep a pair of turkeys from the Thanksgiving roaster.

It's the 70th anniversary of the National Thanksgiving Turkey tradition. "He was a tough cookie". That year, President George H.W. Bush started what has become the tradition upheld by every president since.

Jimmy Fallon had previously joked that Trump will pardon the turkeys, then attack them for not thanking him enough.
