Presidential Turkeys Living It Up In A Hotel And We Give Up

While turkeys all over the US are being prepared for the roasting tray, two are being prepared to be pardoned by the President.

This week marks the 70th anniversary of the ceremonial pardoning of the Thanksgiving turkey… and the two birds are god damn living it up.

The White House Snapchat recently snapped the pair, Drumstick and Wishbone, as they checked into the luxurious Willard Intercontinental hotel in Washington, D.C.


Apparently, they’re staying in a deluxe, two-bedroom suite which has been ‘turkey-proofed’, including pine shavings on the floor to make it feel ‘more like home’.

It’s not just absurd, it’s also not the first time the hotel has put up such fowl guests.

Time reported that the hotel the Presidential turkeys in both 2014 and 2016.

We hope they made the most of their stay.
