Thanksgiving traditions at the White House are cheerful press events. On Monday, President Biden appeared on the South Lawn to pardon Chocolate and Chip, the two turkeys he named after his favorite ice cream.

“It’s a wonderful Thanksgiving tradition here at the White House. There’s a lot to say about it, but it’s chilly outside so I’m going to keep this short,’ said Biden. “Nobody likes it when their turkey gets cold,” added the President.

Biden acknowledged Gov. Roy Cooper by sprinting toward the audience’s side, where the governor was located. He also pointed out the presence of his dog, Commander, who watching the pardoning ceremony from the White House balcony.

During his speech, Biden made a few jokes aimed at Republicans, referencing “fowl play” and saying that the only “red wave” at Thanksgiving would be if Commander knocks over the cranberry sauce.

“There’s no ballot stuffing. There’s no fowl play. The only red wave this season’s gonna be if German Shepard Commander knocks over the cranberry sauce on our table,” joked the President.

After pardoning Chocolate and Chip, Biden spoke about the Thanksgiving season. “This is a special time in the greatest nation on Earth so let’s be thankful,” said Biden.

The President then worked the crowd and greeted schoolchildren from Brooklyn who attended the ceremony.

At one point, passing the media area, he was asked a shouted question about the appointment of the special counsel to investigate matters related to former President Trump.

“I learned about when you did,” said Biden.
