Barron Trump pulled a huge power move worthy of his status as First Son of the United States at the Presidential Turkey Pardon Tuesday.
Trump’s youngest son gave a measured, elegant response when it came time for the turkey pardon, clapping a mere four times.
Twice for each turkey.
Why is this such a power move? Think about it.
Barron doesn’t know what these turkeys have done. They could be big, bad birds with awful temperaments.
What if one of them caused a car crash by wildly running into the road, as turkeys oft do?
Barron doesn’t get ahead of himself by showering these lucky turkeys with undue praise, but still respects the institution of the turkey pardon enough to withhold his own personal opinions and deliver four solid golf claps.
Barron is no chump — he knows his endorsement is extremely powerful.
So instead of pandering to the pro-turkey vegans like President Trump and Melania, Barron does just what’s expected of him.
