Gaetz’s pro-Trump comments on Fox News come just days after the president denounced the network, saying the they “forgot the Golden Goose” that added to their success in recent years.

His reference to the turkey pardoning follows Trump’s participation in the annual White House Thanksgiving tradition yesterday, during which he bestowed his presidential power upon a lucky bird named “Corn.”
