Be thankful for this meme of President Donald Trump pardoning his first turkey.
Trump did the honors for a bird named Drumstick and a friend Wishbone on Tuesday, and it wasn’t long before people online began commenting on and manipulating the images of the presidential Thanksgiving tradition in various amusing ways.
On Reddit, a so-called Photoshop battle blew up over one particular snap:
Over on Twitter, some people imagined what Drumstick was thinking, while others questioned why Trump had opted to grant freedom to a white turkey:
why didn’t the turkey do a backflip in trump’s face we all wanted it so bad

To be fair, there could still be state crimes the turkeys have to answer for.

Trump is saying nicer things about Drumstick, a turkey, than any Dreamer he’s ever mentioned. #turkeypardon

For Thanksgiving Donald Trump is going to pardon a turkey and then yell at it for 14 hours for not thanking him properly

President Trump didn’t pardon the whole turkey, just the white meat.
