It’s a White House tradition for the President to pardon a turkey each year right before Thanksgiving and this year two feathered friends were saved from becoming the main dish for Thanksgiving dinner.
Bread and Butter, the two turkeys Trump saved from slaughter, were also subject to the President’s jokes about the impeachment process which the Democrats are currently pushing through the House.
Trump started off my joking that the turkeys were “to remain calm under any condition, which will be very important because they have already received subpoenas to appear in Adam Schiff’s basement.”
“It seems the Democrats are accusing me of being too soft on turkeys,” he added.
The President then went a little further with the joke, saying “Bread and Butter will provide unique testimony because unlike previous witnesses, you and I have actually met. It’s very unusual.”
"Butter, I wish you a lot of luck. I hereby grant you a full and complete pardon."
