    Tater and Tot were two Turkeys that Obama pardoned in November 2016. The event happened after Trump won the election and got named The President-Elect. Usually the Presidential children are present in such events; however, since S, and M the two Obama-girls had already seen 7 such events, they skipped that year's and Obama came along with two nephews, and did some worn out old jokes.

    ‘I’m Absolutely Expecting Him to Do Something Weird’: How Trump Could End His Presidency

    In the year 2017, when it was Trump's turn to pardon the Turkeys, Trump wondered out loud whether he could rescind the pardons of Tater and Tot, like he had done to all other executive orders of Obama.

    History is interesting, isn't it ?

    Before Trump leaves office he could parton Turkeys, both literal and metaphorical*2.
    He could pardon HIMSELF. I think he should be allowed to pardon himself -- and thus protect him from prosecutions for federal crimes. Crimes in state jurisdictions cannot be absolved by Presidential pardons. NewYork state can still get him into serious troubles worth decades of jail time.

    How do IL'ites feel about Donald Trump pardoning himself ? Should he do it, and would you support such an action as a precedent setting event for the future ?
