Type: Discontinues Respectful TraditionsNov 26 2019 Severity: Targeted: Adam Schiff
Donald Trump turned the traditional Presidential pardoning of two turkeys for Thanksgiving into an attack against Democratic Representative Adam Schiff, saying that the Representative has ignored Trump's pardon and subpoenaed them "to appear in Adam Schiff’s basement on Thursday." Donald then went on to compare the media to vultures before concluding his remarks.
Quote | The President can't help but turning family friendly events into political attacks.
“Thankfully, Bread and Butter have been specially raised by the Jacksons to remain calm under any condition, which will be very important because they’ve already received subpoenas to appear in Adam Schiff’s basement on Thursday. True. Hundreds of people have. It seems the Democrats are accusing me of being too soft on turkey. But Bread and Butter, I should note that unlike previous witnesses, you and I have actually met. Very unusual. Very unusual. In any event, I expect this pardon will be a very popular one with the media. After all, turkeys are closely related to vultures.”
