Tuesday at the WH is turkey pardon day. It's between "Bread" & "Butter," two rotund gobblers, spending their last night at a luxury DC hotel (not Trump's). Then, @POTUS heads to Florida for a "homecoming rally" marking his changing his official state of residence from NY to FL. pic.twitter.com/mfZHkgrjgB

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In a startling break with Thanksgiving tradition, Donald J. Trump refused to pardon the White House turkey after claiming that it was working as a secret operative of the billionaire George Soros.
A group of fourth graders from Bethesda, Maryland, who had gathered on the White House lawn for the annual turkey-pardoning ceremony appeared unprepared for the anti-Soros outburst that Trump unleashed on the Thanksgiving bird.
“That turkey was sent by Soros to spy on me,” Trump said, angrily turning on the fowl. “A lot of people are saying this.”
Two weeks ago Sen. Lindsey Graham went from a White House meeting with Donald Trump and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to the floor of the United States Senate to hastily block a bipartisan resolution formally recognizing Turkey’s genocide against Armenians just over 100 years ago.
Ten days after Erdogan visits Trump in the White House, Turkey flies NATO aircraft to test its new Russian S400 missile system, as Turkish-backed extremists reportedly continue operations in NE Syria. Embarrassing. https://t.co/fBuAjXOMYw
