  • President Trump pardons his first turkey

Trump also continued the fowl tradition of questionable presidential jokes at the ceremony.

Truman was the first to receive a turkey from the National Turkey Federation in 1947, but the Truman Presidential Library says Truman ate those turkeys. "He refused; he was a tough cookie".

Before the actual pardoning, Trump stood for several minutes at the podium, revving up a few turkey-inspired quips, including a reference to the two turkeys pardoned a year ago by President Barack Obama, Tater and Tot. "However, I have been informed by the White House counsel's office that Tater and Tot's pardons can not under any circumstances be revoked", Trump said.

Drumstick, and the backup bird, Wishbone, were raised on a turkey farm in Douglas County, Minnesota. That year, President George H.W. Bush started what has become the tradition upheld by every president since.
