Turkey pardoned this year was a war criminal

When will this administration realize it’s going too far?

This Thanksgiving, the president used the pardon traditionally given to a turkey on Thanksgiving as an opportunity to pardon a dangerous war criminal, who happened to be a turkey.

The turkey, a young bird named Edward Gallagher, has been the subject of a high-profile war crimes case proceeding over the course of this past summer. After being found guilty on all charges, he was pardoned before he could be scarfed down by hungry celebrators on Thanksgiving.

Pass the gravy, please! And by gravy, we mean justice for unarmed civilians.
