President Trump Orders the Execution of Five Turkeys Pardoned by Obama. WASHINGTON, D. C. In another sweeping move aimed at undoing the perceived damage done by the Obama administration, President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order on Tuesday directing the Department of Justice to revoke all sixteen Thanksgiving Day turkey pardons issued by the former president during his eight years in office.“After reviewing the decisions made by the previous administration, President Trump has determined that a number of turkey pardons issued by Barack Obama were done so in a manner that was both deceitful and hazardous to the American people,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced on Tuesday.
This morning, the president once again used his executive powers to see to it that justice is served and that the surviving creatures will be destroyed.”Spicer said very little is known about the true origins of the sixteen turkeys or why they were specifically singled out by former President Barack Obama. There are a lot of obvious questions we just don’t have the answers to. Were they connected to radical Islamic terrorism? Black Lives Matter extremists? We can’t be sure,” he said. All we know is they were sentenced to death and Obama took it upon himself to meddle in the independent judicial process.”Of the sixteen turkeys pardoned by Obama, all but five are deceased.
These birds, despite their deaths, will have their pardons revoked posthumously during a ceremony in the Rose Garden,” Secretary Spicer explained. The remaining birds – Tater, Tot, Abe, Honest, and Cheese – are scheduled to be remanded into federal custody on Friday before they are turned over to officials from the Federal Bureau of Prisons who are under orders to execute the turkeys by firing squad. The annual Thanksgiving Day turkey pardon dates back to 1. President Abraham Lincoln first granted clemency to his son’s beloved pet turkey which the First Family had intended to feast on for Thanksgiving dinner.

Following the news in 2. Every so often, a whirlwind of outrage touches down, sowing destruction and chaos before disappearing into the sky. These conditions are hardly new. Over the past decade or so, outrage has become the default mode for politicians, pundits, critics and, with the rise of social media, the rest of us.
When something outrageous happens—when a posh London block installs anti- homeless spikes, or when Khloé Kardashian wears a Native American headdress, or, for that matter, when we read the horrifying details in the Senate’s torture report—it’s easy to anticipate the cycle that follows: anger, sarcasm, recrimination, piling on; defenses and counterattacks; anger at the anger, disdain for the outraged; sometimes, an apology … and on to the next. Twitter and Facebook make it easier than ever to participate from home. And the same cycle occurs regardless of the gravity of the offense, which can make each outrage feel forgettable, replaceable. The bottomlessness of our rage has a numbing effect.
This desensitization makes it tough to clock exactly how modern outrage functions. Is it as awful as it sometimes feels? More useful than it might seem? Should we be rending our garments about our constant rending of garments? Or should we embrace the new responsiveness of the social and hypersensitive Web? And so—in an effort to answer these and other questions—we resolved to keep track of what people got outraged about every day of 2.
Since January, a phalanx of editors, writers, and interns has been scanning the horizons for funnels of fury. They used a Google doc and a bot that reminded us about the project any time someone used the word outrage on IM. The rage- a- day calendar above contains the fruits of their labor: a comprehensive listing of what was outrageous and whom it outraged, for every single day of the year. The results, we think, are illuminating. People were upset about TV stars and wheelchairs and lattes and racism and war. Some days, people were upset about Slate. Other days, we caught the outrage current and rode it a ways ourselves, as Jordan Weissmann details below.) Though it can be jarring to see something as nation- shaking as Ferguson alongside something as trifling as the cover of a magazine, it’s fascinating to look at how our collective responses skipped from the serious to the picayune without much modulation in pitch.
So please explore the calendar above. Vote on which outrages still outrage you, and which you can’t believe anyone ever cared about. And read the thoughtful essays below, each of which examines some aspect of outrage culture, and explore the way it shapes our world.— Julia Turner. By Choire Sicha. Lena Dunham’s memoir, Not That Kind of Girl, arrived Sept. But a month after publication, a writer at the National Review finally took a read. The writer, Kevin D.
Williamson, discovered a passage in which Dunham recalled at 7 curiously looking into her younger sister’s vagina. His critique was pretty righteously brutal, and headlined “Pathetic Privilege,” but the story, tweeted only 1. It was an aggregation of that piece, with a more straightforward headline and some juicy excerpts, that did the trick: “Lena Dunham Describes Sexually Abusing Her Little Sister,” wrote Bradford Thomas on a website called Ben Shapiro’s Truth Revolt.
That piece is at, as of this writing, 2,9. Photo illustration by Slate. Photo of Lena Dunham by Michael Buckner/Getty Images for SXSW. These twin vines, both accusing Dunham of sexual abuse, took some time to flower. They were published on the same Wednesday, and it wasn’t until Saturday that Dunham went into a self- described “rage spiral” on Twitter. It was also Saturday when Dunham’s lawyers got a pretty stern letter out, claiming defamation and “false light” (malicious embarrassment, essentially). Truth Revoltdoubled down and refused to apologize, to much dismay, although they were quite right on First Amendment grounds.
On Monday, Dunhamannounced she was canceling her book tour events in Belgium and Germany. And also, a Tumblr emerged, or,as Bustle put it, “Lena Dunham Abuse Allegations Spur Awesome Tumblr Where Women Chronicle Early Sexual Experimentation.” By Tuesday, Dunham had issued an “exclusive statement” to Time (Time?),apologizing to those that’d been triggered or upset by her joking about molesting her sister. This was a strange case where an outrage was begun by two publications, but it then spun freely off to feed itself on social media.
Feminists divided against feminists. People—including Dunham’s own sister—were told they were child abuse apologists. But that energy needed to be quickly recaptured by publications—seized from Facebook and Twitter and monetized. Tuesday was the day that everyone got into the act for real. Jezebel gave Dunhaman exceedingly well- argued pass on the topic. Gawker called ina therapist specializing in child abuse.
