First, a flashback to two years ago:
CNN’s John Berman took time on Tuesday to air a clip of the president when he held the White House Turkey Pardon back in 2018. This was the year where two turkeys, “Peas” and “Carrots,” were put to a vote on the White House’s website, and the winner would officially receive Trump’s pardon.
Trump has never been known to adjust well to the lightheartedness of the goofy tradition, and as he administered the pardon to Peas, he joked that Carrots was challenging the results of “a fair and open election.”
“Unfortunately, Carrots refused to concede and demanded a recount, and we’re still fighting with Carrots. And I will tell you, we’ve come to a conclusion. Carrots, I’m sorry to tell you, the result did not change.”
Today’s pardoning is scheduled for 2PM Eastern.
