Showing up for the annual turkey pardon with First lady Melania and his son Barron in the Rose Garden, President Trump took the opportunity to take a shot at his hapless predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama.
The pardoning of the two giant birds is a tradition dating back more than 60 years. The birds get pardoned and then spend the rest of their lives on a turkey farm.
Today’s birds were named “Drumstick” and “Wing Bone.” Trump began the proceedings by thanking the gathered crowd for being there and saying the birds will be “very happy.”
But Trump could not help himself when discussing the pardoning of his predecessor, Barack Obama, and who could blame him?
After all, the former President has 8 years of mistakes, mishaps, and mismanagement for Trump to draw from for material.
The turkeys Trump pardoned will go live with the two former turkeys Obama pardoned last year. While announcing this, Trump fired a wisecrack at Barry Obama, saying with a big smile that he has been “active in overturning” his legacy, and that the White House Counsel had to intervene in Trump’s decision to “revoke” the Obama pardons.
They will join Tater and Tot. Tater and Tot are two Turkeys pardoned by President Obama. I have been very active in overturning a number of executive actions by my predecessor. However, I have been informed by the White House Counsel that Tater and Tot’s pardons cannot be revoked. We’re not going to revoke them. Tater and Tot, you can rest easy.
One thing is for certain. Half of America will have the first Happy Thanksgiving in 8 years, thankful that they and the nation managed to survive the disastrous Obama regime.
