Obama Pardons Turkey, Mocks Republicans

Pardoning turkeys is stupid. So, why not have fun with it?

President Obama joked Wednesday about his executive actions giving legal status to as many as five million undocumented immigrants, saying his Thanksgiving pardon of a turkey would doubtlessly be criticized as “amnesty.”

Obama said the pardon of a turkey named Cheese would be the “most talked about executive action this month” and one that’s “fully within my legal authority.”

“I know some will call this amnesty, but don’t worry, there is plenty of turkey to go around,” he said.

Maybe Trey Gowdy can form a investigative committee to subpoena everyone involved in this blatant power grab.
