Notice that the turkey Trump pardoned was

Joseph

Apparently, all domesticated turkeys are white. Here in RI, we routinely have to stop our cars for "real" turkeys, who strut like they own the state. Same when I lived in PA. Used to enjoy watching POTUS pardon the bird but just cannot accept that we have this guy as president. I always assume he has an ulterior motive to whatever he does. Watching BHO and his adorable kids (though they seemed pained) do this ritual was fun.

was the turkey subjected to extreme vetting?

Is the pardoned turkey being deported?

Hope the turkeys were sufficiently grateful to Trump. He might have tweeted "I should have let them get whacked."

Only our national embarrassment could disgust me with the silliest of traditions:  

“I feel so good about myself,” the president said softly, appraising his own clemency, laying a hand on the bird after seeking permission to touch it from turkey professionals.

No. It's white.

he actually also joked about rescinding Obama's pardons to the turkeys from last year:

However, I have been informed by the White House counsel's office that Tater and Tot's pardons cannot, under any circumstances, be revoked," he added, referring to the turkeys pardoned by former President Barack Obama last year.
