Free Birds: President Obama Pardons ‘Honest’ and ‘Abe’
With his daughters by his side, President Obama performed one of his least favorite presidential duties today at the White House. He pardoned two Thanksgiving turkeys. The turkeys were given the names Honest and Abe by California school children. “Abe is now a free bird,” the president proclaimed. For security reasons, Honest is in an undisclosed location.
