President Obama Pardons Turkeys Honest and Abe
PRESIDENT OBAMA PARDONS NATIONAL PRESIDENTIAL TURKEY (ABC 7 News)
The famous birds from Foster Farms in Modesto left for Washington, D.C on Monday from San Francisco International Airport.
School children named the gobblers "Honest" and "Abe." The turkeys received a pardon from President Obama.
"It is hard to believe this is my seventh year pardoning a turkey," said the president. "Time flies, even though turkeys don't. That was good, I thought it was pretty good."
