President Donald Trump is using his pardon power to keep a pair of turkeys from the Thanksgiving roaster.
Trump continued the annual presidential tradition during an event Tuesday in the White House Rose Garden. The act of leniency means 47-pound Drumstick and 36-pound Wishbone will instead get to live the rest of their lives at a Virginia farm. First lady Melania Trump and son Barron joined the president for the light-hearted ceremony.
The first lady looked absolutely stylish in her casual fall outfit — black trousers, a pair of Victoria Beckham knee-high black boots, a bright red Ralph Lauren turtleneck and a plaid Calvin Klein coat draped over her shoulders. She kept her brunette tresses in its usual blown out style, light makeup and pale pink polish on her perfectly manicured fingernails.
Meanwhile, Barron, who is already taller than his mother in heels, donned black trousers and a matching blazer with a white button-down shirt underneath.
They both looked in good spirits as they exchanged smiles and chuckles during the short and sweet appearance.
This year’s tree was grown in Wisconsin and will eventually be situated in the Blue Room. It was provided by the Chapman family of Silent Night Evergreens, which has provided the official White House Christmas tree since 1996.
The tree greeting ceremony marks the start of the holiday season at the White House. The holiday festivities will continue on Tuesday with President Trump’s first turkey pardoning. However, the first family will be spending Thanksgiving at Mar-a-Lago instead of the White House.
Here are the photos:
She is beautiful, elegant, smart, speaks 5 languages and is proud to be an American. Yes, you got it right…we are talking about First Lady Melania Trump.
Melania Trump always looks gorgeous and she is always well dressed. President Trump and his beautiful wife Melania Trump attended a State Dinner in Beijing, China on Thursday night and the outfit she wore at Chinese state dinner caught everyone’s attention. We were not surprised that Melania dazzled everyone with her grace and elegance, but we were amazed by her confirmation of her impeccable style.
