White House turkeys are 'Drumstick' and 'Wishbone'

Last year's turkeys, Tater and Tot, also live there.

As Trump pardoned the turkeys, some of his political critics wondered if he planned to use his pardoning power as the investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election continue.

Not all those birds were as lucky as Wishbone and Drumstick, whose names were selected by a White House social media poll.

A reporter yelled out to ask President Donald Trump if he would "pardon any people" Tuesday as he performed the tradition of presidents pardoning a turkey before Thanksgiving.

Trump joked that, while he has taken many steps to try to reverse Obama's executive actions, the White House counsel's office advised him not to try to overturn the Democratic president's previous pardon of Wishbone and Drumstick's predecessors.

"Tator and Tot you can rest easy", Trump added.

Trump targets Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch in Twitter rant
At the rally, the president said any "SOB" who kneels during the anthem deserves to be taken off the field. "Out! He's fired. Lynch sat for the United States' national anthem, as he has in every game this season.

"Oh I think Drumpstick is going to be very happy".

"Today in the spirit of thanksgiving".

"Please stand what a great job you've done", Trump said. It's a cool deal for Minnesota turkey growers, and Carl Wittenburg of Alexandria, Minnesota, Chair of the National Turkey Federation, who's tasked with providing the turkeys that President Trump will pardon.

Trump said he and Melania have have welcomed many special visitors to the White House over the last 10 months, "and, along the way, a few very unusual birds".

Presidents like George H.W. Bush and Barack Obama have all participated in the annual tradition.
