Breaking news. The President has publicly expressed his dissatisfaction with the failure of the pardoned turkey to thank him for not becoming another Thanksgiving meal. Hints that a trip to the chopping block is a distinct possibility.

Have you seen the list of hardened criminals that Barack Obama pardoned? Were you critical of him? To say nothing of his release of terrorists from Guantanamo.
Exactly.

Obviously these turkey's must be related to the same set of turkeys who just got out of jail in China for shoplifting. Too bad China isn't more like Singapore, they could have really given those turkey's a thorough and well deserved canning, much like they did to that turkey back in the early 90's.

Canned turkey? Is that anything like Spam?

Quite surprising. I was expecting him to send the bird to the White House Kitchen.

Luckily for the turkey, it’s name isn’t Hillary, James, Jeff or Robert.

He just can't help himself from trolling and bashing people. If it was his attempt at humor, he's got a sick sense of humor given how he's trying to undo everything else that the Obama administration did.

As many of you know, I have been very active in overturning a number of executive actions by my predecessor. However, I have been informed by the White House counsel’s office that Tater and Tot’s pardons cannot, under any circumstances, be revoked.
