John Oliver: No Presidential Pardon for Turkeys -- They Are Too Tasty
Saying he is like a “psychotic ex, sending you videos all of the time,” John Oliver — whose Last Week Tonight is on hiatus — posted a video to YouTube to discuss America’s “strangest Thanksgiving tradition”: the Presidential pardoning of a turkey.
Oliver notes that only one turkey receives a pardon while America consumes an estimated 46 million of the bird’s peers.
The HBO host calls for all turkeys to be eaten, saying they are delicious before proclaiming, “death to turkeys!”
