John Oliver on Turkey Pardoning

Obama turkey pardon 560x362We’ve taken on the topic of Presidential Pardons to the National Thanksgiving Turkey before, but how does a Brit living in America feel about it? Of course John Oliver has an opinion on the subject, so here is Oliver tackling the topic of Turkey Pardoning in a web exclusive while his Last Week Tonight show was on hiatus back in 2014. In the clip, Oliver questions our absurdly adorable Thanksgiving tradition of presidents choosing one special turkey to pardon each year to make us feel better about eating the rest of them.

Death to Turkeys!
