US President Donald Trump last Tuesday forgave a turkey on the eve of Thanksgiving, a tradition of decades in the country. This year, the lucky one was Corn (corn), who received “total forgiveness” from Trump.

This does not mean, however, that the neglected bird, Cob (ear), will be sacrificed. The two turkeys will go to Iowa State University together, where they will live the rest of their lives in peace, without risking a meal.
Corn and Cob were created by Ron Kardel, president of the National Turkeys Federation and a sixth generation farmer from Walcott, Iowa.

Before the pardon ceremony, the White House introduced the two candidates and created a poll on Twitter, asking followers which turkey deserved the honor. Corn was ahead of Cob by almost eight points: 53.7% to 46.3%.
President George HW Bush reinstated the tradition of pardoning turkeys in 1989, saving a 22 kilogram bird.
But stories of spared turkeys date back to Abraham Lincoln’s presidency.
On Thanksgiving Day, one of the most important holidays in the United States and Canada, families gather to dine on a roasted turkey.
The festival has its roots in the early years of European colonization in North America, when European newcomers had a tradition of giving thanks to God for the abundance of the harvest and the help received by the Indians.
