President Donald Trump joked about the midterms, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and Democrats during the annual presidential turkey pardon Tuesday.
Speaking from the Rose Garden, Trump delivered the annual address. "At this time of the year, we reflect on all of the many blessings in our lives," he said.
Speaking alongside First Lady Melania Trump, the president explained that "the winner of this vote was decided by a fair and open election." Trump announced that of the two turkeys, Peas and Carrots, Peas had won the popular vote for the pardon. Referencing the contentious midterm elections, Trump joked, "Unfortunately, Carrots refused to concede and demanded a recount, and we’re still fighting with Carrots," Trump joked.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Trump announced he would be pardoning them both. Unfortunately, "even though Peas and Carrots have received a presidential pardon," Trump said, "I have warned them that House Democrats are likely to issue them both subpoenas."
