Happy Thanksgiving from Dinner Table Politics!
Abby and Jim discuss the history of Thanksgiving in America, notably the first pardoned turkey inspired by Abraham Lincoln's youngest and "dumpiest" son. (We didn't make that up.) We also explore the fate of 21st Century turkeys that don't live long after their moment of glory on the White House lawn.
Discussions of what we're thankful for lead to a conversation about whether or not Jim Acosta and CNN have a constitutional right to a White House press pass, and we conclude with a really strange joke about a giant orange head to kick off your Thanksgiving celebration.
