President made light of inquiry, saying birds named Bread and Butter have received subpoenas to appear in Adam Schiffs basement on Thursday
The question was, would Donald Trump go there? Of course he would.
Those were innocent times. Trump is under the cloud of an impeachment inquiry and, even as guests gathered in the White House Rose Garden on a beautifully crisp autumn day, the House of Representatives judiciary committee announced a hearing for next week.
So when the current president emerged from the Oval Office with the first lady, Melania Trump, but not his children, he faced a dilemma of tone and whether to make light of the looming charges of high crimes and misdemeanours as he talked about Bread and Butter, the names of this years turkeys, from North Carolina. Trump being Trump, he dived in.
Thankfully, Bread and Butter have been specially raised to remain calm under any condition, which will be very important because theyve already received subpoenas to appear in Adam Schiffs basement on Thursday, Trump said. Its true. Hundreds of people have.
