'Peas' and 'Carrots' to be pardoned by Trump

The White House is introducing its pair of turkeys — with vegetable-inspired names — that are poised to be pardoned by President TrumpDonald TrumpIran convicts American businessman on spying charge: report DC, state capitals see few issues, heavy security amid protest worries Pardon-seekers have paid Trump allies tens of thousands to lobby president: NYT MORE: Peas and Carrots.


The White House Twitter account tweeted vitals about the feather-covered pair on Monday.

“Peas,” according the White House, weighs 39 pounds and enjoys listening to country music star Brad Paisley, eating popcorn, ice fishing and watching planes.


His gobbling rival, “Carrots,” is a heftier bird at 41 pounds, and digs Elvis Presley, M&Ms and yoga.


Both birds were born in June.

While voters can choose which turkey Trump will pardon at an annual ceremony Tuesday at the White House, both animals will be spared.

The pair — currently biding their time in luxury digs at the Willard InterContinental Hotel in Washington ahead of their appearance at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. — will live a Thanksgiving table-free life at Virginia Tech’s Gobbler’s Rest exhibit following the pardoning ceremony.

The turkey pardon is an annual Thanksgiving tradition that's said to date back to the days of Abraham Lincoln.
