Thanksgiving Turkey May Have Spent More Time with Press Inside White House Than Press Secretary

Noting the irony, ABC's White House correspondent Alex Mallin tweeted the following:
On Tuesday, Trump pardoned a 39-pound bird called Peas and its sibling Carrots in a Presidential Thanksgiving tradition that dates back to days of George W Washington.The President also indulged in some satirical banter at the event.

However, before the ceremony, Peas made an appearance in the press-briefing room inside the White House, which brought on Mallin's observation. According to a report in Washington Post, the turkey has spent one minute at the press podium for every 4.6 minutes that Sanders the White House Press Secretary did. Needless to say, social media was all over the observation within moments.

I'd rather listen to the turkey.— Clifford L Freedom (@CliffFreedom) November 20, 2018
If the president is pardoning him, I'll bet we'll soon find out that the turkey has ties to Russia.— Rick Orner (@Chimpinalls) November 20, 2018

In fact, social media has been especially rough for the POTUS this Thanksgiving with the festive birds making it to several Thanksgiving memes at the expense of Trump.

Trump may not pardon a turkey this year because he wants to save his “turkey pardon” for Don Jr.— Bryan Behar (@bryanbehar) November 20, 2018
