President Trump Pardons his first Turkey. But did he drop the ball?

Trump's First Turkey Pardon

President Trump pardoned his first turkey for the 2017 Thanksgiving holiday, and for his Presidency. But some feel the quaint and whimsical tradition didn’t go well, in keeping with sweeping doubts about the President’s administration. Watch this short video to find out about these concerns.

And regarding the Turkey Pardon ceremony itself, this quaint tradition dates back a very long time. One or two birds 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.
