President Donald Trump carried out the annual Thanksgiving White House turkey pardon. This year’s lucky birds saved from the oven were named Bread and Butter.
Privately, the President is embittered, annoyed and demanding the tradition be changed to pardon his favourite meal, turkey Twizzlers.
Farmers have gifted turkeys to presidents since the 1870s, when a turkey supplier from Rhode island sent fattened birds to the White House as a gift. It is thought the first turkey “pardon” occurred in 1863 when President Abraham Lincoln’s son Tad begged his father not to kill the Thanksgiving turkey, so the turkey was spared.
Trump’s son, Barron, wanted to take a baseball bat to Bread and Butter.
The chair of the National Turkey Federation provides Thanksgiving Turkey to the White House. This year, farmer Wellie Jackson and his son drove the turkeys from North Carolina to Washington. As is the tradition, the turkeys stayed at the luxurious Willard Hotel, near the White House.
The President clearly has a real connection with any creature willing to take luxury stay overs in hotels, then retire to a place called Gobblers Creek.
The President used the annual Thanksgiving tradition to crack gags about his impeachment inquiry.”Thankfully, Bread and Butter have been specially raised by the Jacksons to remain calm under any condition, which will be very important because they’ve already received subpoenas to appear in Adam Schiff’s basement on Thursday,”
In an amazing twist though, the birds, are expected, while co-hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, to announce they are running and now favourites to lead the Democrats and take on Trump in the race to be the first (real) turkeys to lead the free world.
The two spared birds will move to their new home with the rest of the pardoned turkeys at Virginia Tech, Gobblers Rest.
When hearing of Gobblers Rest, the President bought the land and has demanded to build a Trump Gobbler’s Rest hotel and golf resort there.
