Despite the show’s hiatus until February, John Oliver and the Last Week Tonight gang decided to ruin Thanksgiving for everybody. The former Daily Show correspondent and interim host took two minutes to criticize the annual tradition of the presidential turkey pardon with an ultimatum.
“The whole thing is so strange. If we’re going to pardon one turkey, we should pardon them all. Or we should put them all on trial, which would admittedly be a little difficult because getting a jury of their peers is nearly impossible.”
Oliver has a point. Then again, turkey tastes really, really good. They say ignorance is bliss, especially when a Thanksgiving-induced food coma is imminent.
