(National Sentinel) Trolling: Whatever positive views POTUS Donald Trump had of Democratic politicians and the Left prior to taking office, they are likely long gone thanks to the nasty way they’ve treated him.
So it follows that the president would want to take a little jab at the insane, perpetually triggered Left whenever he gets the chance.
On Tuesday as POTUS Trump engaged in the annual presidential ritual of pardoning a turkey before Thanksgiving, he couldn’t help doubling down on having some fun with Democrats and their political allies.
In pardoning two turkeys — one named “Peas” and the other named “Carrots” — the president noted that his actions were likely to be challenged by judicial activists judges on the 9th Circuit Court.
Peas won an online White House poll as the turkey to be spared. “Unfortunately, Carrots refused to concede and demanded a recount,” the president said in an obvious jab at the ridiculous recount efforts involving loser Democrats Andrew Gillum and Sen. Bill Nelson in Florida.
“We’re still fighting with Carrots,” POTUS said to laughter from the assembled guests in the White House Rose Garden, where he attended the ceremony with first lady Melania Trump.
The turkeys, which came from South Dakota and were part of a presidential flock of 50 birds raised under the supervision of the National Turkey Foundation, will live out their days at Gobbler’s Rest on the campus of Virginia Tech University.
But POTUS warned: “It won’t be entirely a rest. Even though Peas and Carrots have received a presidential pardon, I have warned them that House Democrats are likely to issue them both subpoenas.”
And he also advised Peas and Carrots: “Unfortunately, I can’t guarantee that the pardons won’t be enjoined by the 9th Circuit. It always happens.”

The court blocked the president’s first two travel bans last year; a third ban was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Earlier this week, a federal judge from the 9th Circuit also blocked POTUS’ executive order changing asylum rules ahead of the arrival of thousands of migrants traveling in caravans across Mexico under the guise of national emergency statutes.
We wrote an analysis of that decision here and explained why the president has the constitutional authority to ignore the ruling.
