TRUMP’S FINAL TURKEY PARDON: Pres. Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump hold their final turkey pardoning ceremony before they leave the White House in January. The birds, named ‘Corn’ and ‘Cob,’ were raised in a special heated and air-conditioned building in Walcott, IA and have been staying at The Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C. The public votes to choose which turkey will receive the official presidential pardon, but both Corn and Cob will return to Iowa and spend the rest of their days in the care of Iowa State University’s Animal Science department.

During the turkey pardoning ceremony in 2018, Trump joked that though the turkey ‘Carrots’ had lost to ‘Peas’ in a free and fair election on the White House website, Carrots ‘refused to concede and demanded a recount.’ Video clips from that day have been widely reshared as Trump continues to refuse to acknowledge his own election loss, tweeting again last night that he will ‘never concede.’ This is one of few public appearances Pres. Trump has made since Election Day.
