In the continuation of a longstanding White House holiday tradition, President Trump pardoned two turkeys.
The president’s ceremonial pardon of “Peas” and “Carrots” is guaranteed to drive liberals batshit because: 1) They hate Thanksgiving and 2) It was on day 670 of the Trump presidency as they have failed to reverse the results of the 2016 elections with their witch hunts, fake news and stupid protests.
Like all presidents before him, Trump had a ball on Tuesday.

Via Real Clear Politics, “Trump Pardons Turkeys ‘Peas’ and ‘Carrots’: “Extremely Lucky Birds”:
A pair of South Dakota turkeys named “Peas” and “Carrots” will receive a pardon from President Donald Trump on Tuesday and avoid ending up as Thanksgiving dinner at the White House.
Trump joked that Peas was the original winner for a pardon in a vote that took place on the White House website, however Carrots demanded there be a recount. Trump said the results did not change, however he will pardon Carrots nonetheless:
PRESIDENT TRUMP: I am pleased to announce, that today’s lucky bird and guest of honor is named Peas, along with his alternate, named Carrots. The children will understand.
The winner of this vote was conducted by a fair election on the White House website. Unfortunately, Carrots refused to concede and demanded a recount and we are still fighting. I will tell you we’ve come to a conclusion. Carrots, I’m sorry to tell you, the result did not change.
