President Trump Pardons White House Thanksgiving Turkey…

In keeping with modern presidential tradition, President Trump, First-Lady Melania Trump and their son Barron participate in the annual pardon of the Thanksgiving turkey.

Drumstick comes from Minnesota and was raised by 4-H members in Douglas County. President Trump noted that he has overturned many of President Barack Obama’s orders, but said White House counsel advised him he could not overturn Obama’s pardon last year of turkeys Tater and Tot. WATCH:

    It’s a good thing for that turkey that he wasn’t named HilLIARy in honor of Sir Edmund Hilliary.

    I just hope that this “Pardoning Turkeys” is not taken as a precedent when the Clinton gang are convicted πŸ™‚

    I am surprised a liberal judge didn’t block the pardon.

    I absolutely loved when he said that the one thing he can’t overturn is Barry’s pardon of his turkeys πŸ¦ƒ from the year prior!

    In 8 years Barry’s legacy will only be Tatar and Tot!

      My wife said the same thing at the Welcoming of the Christmas Tree. He is much taller, slimmer and looks more comfortable in front of the crowd. She says Barron looks like Eric and bets he will be a few inches taller than Eric. I didn’t take that bet.

        I just wish he would smile a bit more. It is hard for a young kid to be in such a public position, but I am sure that he will grow into it over the next seven years.

          tapping, when I was in my early teens I loved to laugh, tell sly jokes, poke fun at everything including myself. But I never could smile on command; even to this day. I have a fine natural smile, but if told to “smile!” it looks like I’m baring my teeth.

          I have always suspected that was the case with Barron. If something hits him, he’ll smile and it will be GREAT. Otherwise, he’ll keep an even keel.

          tappin52, he is still just a young boy not yet 12 and at that age they generally don’t smile a lot, especially in front of a lot of people. Yep, he is already almost as tall as Melania and looks like both his father and a little of Eric.

        He does seem more comfortable…You have to remember all the attacks he had to see for a long time and still sees on his dad & even himself.

    Melania looked like a Thanksgiving dream. What a great outfit! And I was kinda tickled that Barron was wearing a suit and tie.

    Anyone besides me remember BOs daughters slouching around in sloppy casual clothing looking sulky and put upon for having to be there? Today’s ceremony is a nice memory to have to replace that one.

      Sylvia, I am just as comfortable in a suit and tie as I am in cargo shorts and a t-shirt IF I am wearing a properly cut, well-fitting suit, shirt, and tie. I know about uncomfortable dress clothes as I was the youngest of three boys and I was always the third boy to wear any clothes. Didn’t get my first pair of new jeans until 9th grade. No kidding.

      Barron has been blessed to be born into a family that is fashion aware (candidate for understatement of the year, eh?) and that will make sure all his clothes are a perfect, comfortable fit.

      Barron understands the idea of dressing for the occasion and has the clothes for every occasion. I was taught to dress for the occasion, but had little choice of clothes for the occasion.

      Barron is just as comfortable in a suit as he is in cargo shorts and a t-shirt; just 20 years earlier than I was.

      P.S. Love ya’, Sylvia, but you and some of the other Treeper women have ruined some of us Treeper guys when it comes to fashion. Now noticing SHOES! fer cryin’ out loud! We are all dooooooomed!

    Nice to see Barron at three different times in the last couple of days.

    I totally understand the low profile letting him be a kid, but it’s great to see him.
