In a time-honored White House tradition, President Joe Biden presided over the annual Thanksgiving turkey pardon yesterday. Two fortunate turkeys, aptly named Liberty and Bell, received a presidential reprieve, sparing them from the Thanksgiving dinner table.
As is customary for this lighthearted event, President Biden injected a dose of humor into the proceedings. Among the quips and puns, the President remarked, “The votes are in, they’ve been counted and verified, no ballot stuffing, no fowl play. The only red wave this season is going to be if [my dog] Commander knocks over the cranberry sauce.”
Following the turkey pardon, President Biden reflected on the upcoming week when Americans will gather with their loved ones, upholding family traditions.
In a poignant moment, he acknowledged the recent passing of former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, emphasizing her inspirational journey that left a lasting impact on the nation and the world. Biden encouraged a collective remembrance of loved ones who are no longer with us.
Closing his remarks on a note of gratitude, he added, “And let us remind ourselves that we are blessed to live in the greatest nation on this face of the Earth.”
The national turkey presentation and pardon, a cherished tradition, marked the unofficial commencement of the holiday season in Washington. This time-honored event is a joyous occasion, symbolizing the spirit of sharing joy and gratitude, all while adding a touch of lighthearted fun to the festivities. This year’s celebration in the nation’s capital not only continued the tradition but also commemorated the 76th anniversary of this heartwarming event, underscoring its enduring significance in the fabric of American holiday traditions.
