President Trump says while he's been "very active" in overturning Obama-era policies, revoking turkey pardons won't be among them. "Tater and Tot, you can rest easy".
If Trump can't be trusted to do something as simple as telling a few bad jokes and pardon a couple of Thanksgiving turkeys, he can't be trusted to make life and death decisions for the country.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (WBRE/WYOU-TV) President Donald Trump continued a White House Tradition on Tuesday pardoning the national Thanksgiving turkey.
"Wow, big bird", the President said as he approached the 36-pound turkey, petting it several times.
Trump's first turkey pardon marks the 70th year the National Turkey Federation has presented the President with a Turkey.

Several post-18 colleges are located on the campus, including the International Institute of Trade and Development. The interior ministry said the students were lightly injured; BFM reported that two were in serious condition.
President Harry Truman was the first to be given birds by the National Turkey Federation, the same organization that presented President Trump with Wishbone and Drumstick - but Truman likely dined on his. "He refused; he was a tough cookie".
The Republican president couldn't resist referring to his predecessor, former Democratic President Barack Obama, who pardoned two turkeys named Tater and Tot a year ago.
President George H.W. Bush brought it back in 1989. Instead they're sent away to live on a farm or petting zoo, blissfully unaware of their good luck.
Trump thanked the military and law enforcement prior to the pardon. But just as today, only one bird is honored at the annual ceremony.
