Thanksgiving Tradition Continues: Thanksgiving Turkey Pardoned

Thanksgiving Tradition Continues: Thanksgiving Turkey Pardoned

He was joined by his wife Melania and son Barron. This year's victor is "Drumstick", who garnered 60% support over rival "Wishbone", who earned 40%. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the National Thanksgiving Turkey tradition. "He was a tough cookie". "Today, I'm going to be a much nicer president".

The Echo Press will continue to post updates on the presidential turkeys and their trip to the White House.

Per a freaky White House tradition, which was made an official event in 1989 under George H.W. Bush, the president, joined by the first lady, will grant these two turkeys clemency in the Rose Garden, before taking off for Florida to celebrate the holiday.

Drumstick, and the backup bird, Wishbone, were raised on a turkey farm in Douglas County, Minnesota.

"I've been very active in overturning a number of actions by my predecessor". However, I have been informed by the White House councils office that Tater and Tot pardons can not under any circumstances be revoked'.

We're not exactly sure how it will be with Trump, but last time the president interacted with a large bird, posing with a bald eagle for a TIME magazine cover photo shoot, it did not go well. "So Tater and Tot, you can rest easy". It's a cool deal for Minnesota turkey growers, and Carl Wittenburg of Alexandria, Minnesota, Chair of the National Turkey Federation, who's tasked with providing the turkeys that President Trump will pardon.

The turkey pardon tradition began during the Harry Truman administration. These are incredible people.

"I'd also like to express my thanks to the wonderful citizens of our country-the people who care for our communities, raise America's children, uphold our laws and our values, and make this fantastic land into our national home".

President Donald Trump on Tuesday made his first pardons since wiping Sheriff Joe Arpaio's contempt of court conviction in August.
