Trump jokes about killing Obama's Thanksgiving turkeys

Following their time in the spotlight at the White House, this year's Minnesota-raised birds, named Wishbone and Drumstick, will head to the "Gobblers Rest" exhibit at Virginia Tech, where they'll be cared for by students and veterinarians.

"As many of you know, I have been very active in turning over a number of executive actions by my predecessor". "I have been informed by the White House counsel's office that Tater and Tot's pardons can not under any circumstances be revoked".

The focus then turned back to the turkey of honor. As for "strut style", Drumstick does his thing "tall and proud" and Wishbone's more of a "strong shuffle".

In 1865, White House reporter Noah Brooks recounted an anecdote Lincoln told him: A live turkey was brought home for Christmas dinner, but Lincoln's son interceded on behalf of the animal.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A good presidential turkey is stuffed with showmanship.

The president pardoned Drumstick, and his sidekick, Wishbone, during the annual Thanksgiving Presidential Pardon in the White House Rose Garden.

Trump's first turkey pardon marks the 70th year the National Turkey Federation has presented the President with a Turkey. "He refused. He was a tough cookie", Trump said. It's the 70th year that the trade group has presented the US president with a turkey to mark the Thanksgiving holiday.

Gone were the groan-inducing dad jokes and lighthearted fun of Obama's turkey pardons. Formal pardons began with President George H.W. Bush in 1989.
