President Obama Pardons TOFUS [VIDEO]

This afternoon, flanked by the First Daughters, President Obama performed one the silliest yet most-loved American traditions, the pardoning of the national turkey. “Abe is now a free bird. He is TOTUS – the turkey of the United States.” Another turkey named Honest, the potential chopping block stand-in for the talkable TOFUS, was also pardoned. The pardoning of the Thanksgiving turkey is a relatively new tradition which only dates back to the Bush I administration.
