President Donald Trump and his First Lady Melania participated in the annual turkey pardon ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. Several reporters shouted questions during the event, but Trump ignored the reporters and carried on with the traditional pardon.

“Corn, I hereby grant you a full pardon! We give thanks to the priceless freedoms that we’ve inherited and we ask God to watch over and protect our nation,” said the president.
