President Biden granted the annual presidential pardon for turkeys on Monday, and he made sure the GOP turkeys predicting a red wave didn’t get off the hook.

Biden said: “First of all, the votes are in. They have been counted and verified. There is no chicken game. There was no ballot stuffing. The only red wave this season will be like our German Shepherd Commander knocks over the cranberry sauce on our table. “
According to tradition at the turkey pardon, the jokes are corny. However, Biden has a long way to go if he ever reaches the level of corniness that President Obama’s turkey pardon jokes were.
All in all, the turkey pardon is usually a light-hearted event, but even President Biden couldn’t resist giving Republicans a little tweaking. The only red wave they’ll see this week is at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade, as Santa flies by on Thanksgiving Day.
