President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump participate in the presentation of the National Thanksgiving turkey at the White House.

Either “Peas” or “Carrots” will be the lucky recipient of a presidential pardon Tuesday — not that either has committed a crime — but the well-timed reprieve at least means retirement for the Thanksgiving turkeys to the relative freedom and comfort of a Virginia farm.

Tanya Louise says:

They should hold it at Gobblers Knob in Punxsutawney , then it could also tell us if we are going to have 12 more weeks of winter.
And I just did a census check. Apparently there is actually 1 , yes just 1 person in the whole of the USA with the first name of Peas !

Careful now with the hands in that pardon because the dumbocrats may offer the turkey free attorneys to file sexual assault case 20 years from now

Why not make this tradition something more meaningful and newsworthy by also pardoning deserving people.

Headline News:
President Trump pardons 2 Thanksgiving turkeys!
– Then immediately nominates them for the Supreme Court.

George West says:

Many Trump hating fools. Best economy in decades, more jobs for everyone, drug prices dropping, Jerusalem recognized as capital of Israel (as it has been for 4000 years), more accomplishments in 2 years than any president in recent history. When we ask why you hate him, you get things like "he's a racist". You people need to get a life.
