If you have been wondering why President Trump’s pardon turkey memes 2017 are trending, it’s because he has one more executive decision: Turkey pardoning! If you’re in the mood for a few hilarious Donald Trump turkey memes, then we have exactly what you need before the big day.
There’s never a shortage of President Donald Trump memes and he’s been the butt of almost every joke since he took office. This time, the funny Donald Trump turkey memes are about actual turkeys, but some have made reference to a few current and former White House employees. On Tuesday afternoon in the White House Rose Garden, Trump participated in his first pardoning of a pair of turkeys. Former President Barack Obama pardoned turkeys, Tater and Tot last year and Trump even joked about overturning their pardon.
“I have been very active in overturning a number of executive actions by my predecessor,” Trump began. “However, I have been informed by the White House counsel’s office that Tater and Tot’s pardons cannot under any circumstances be revoked. So we’re not going to revoke them.”
The president continued to address his own soon-to-be pardoned turkeys, Drumstick and Wishbone, who will not be eaten for Thanksgiving.
“Hi Drumstick. Oh, Drumstick, I think, is going to be very happy.” He later added, “I’m pleased to report that unlike millions of other turkeys at this time of year, Drumstick has a very bright future ahead of him.”
The pardoned animals are transferred to “Gobbler’s Rest” (yes, that the real name), a science facility on the campus of Virginia Tech University.
Some have criticized that Trump couldn’t even pardon a turkey without mentioning his predecessor, while others have also quipped about Obama being able to keep at least one part of his legacy away from Trump’s hands—even if it’s as simple as a pardoned turkey!
Since Trump’s first day in the oval office, many have revolted against his controversial decisions and have found it hard to be thankful for his presidency. The country has been torn apart by several instances of violence, from natural disasters to racism. Then when you add the rash of sexual harassment claims in Hollywood, you may find it hard to be thankful at all. But, luckily, there’s always a silver lining somewhere, which is why you will want to check out our latest Trump turkey memes this Thanksgiving! If nothing else, you’ll get a good chuckle from these ones!
