Donald Trump attempts political satire in Thanksgiving turkey pardon

The US president has pardoned a Thanksgiving turkey in a presidential tradition which dates back to George H W Bush in 1989. In a speech with references to the recent midterm elections, Donald Trump announced that a turkey named Peas had won a public vote on the White House website to be guest of honour, while Carrots would be the alternative turkey. ‘This was a fair election … unfortunately Carrots refused to concede and demanded a recount. We’re still fighting with Carrots”
