Last Turkey Pardon for President Obama
President Obama pardoned his last two turkeys for the 2016 Thanksgiving holiday. This quaint tradition dates back a very long time. One or two gobblers are symbolically pardoned, and sent away to live out their lives in peace on a farm, rather than becoming someone’s holiday dinner. Turkey, of course, is the iconic Thanksgiving Day food enjoyed around the country, typically with stuffing and cranberry sauce, along with other fixings and side dishes.
