A THOUSAND WORDS Trump tells


impeachment jokes
at annual turkey
pardon event
‘It seems the Democrats
are accusing me of being
too soft on turkey’
By DARLENE SUPERVILLE
The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President
Donald Trump couldn’t resist riffing
on the House impeachment inquiry
Tuesday as he continued the tradition
of pardoning a Thanksgiving turkey,
generating holiday-season laughter
at the expense of House Intelligence
Committee Chairman Rep. Adam
Schiff, one of his chief antagonists in
Congress.
Trump joked that the pair of North
Carolina-bred turkeys he was about
to pardon had been raised to “remain
calm under any condition,” a trait
that he said will be “very important
because they’ve already received
subpoenas to appear in Adam Schiff’s
basement on Thursday.”
“It seems the Democrats are ac-
cusing me of being too soft on tur-
key,” Trump told guests seated in the
White House Rose Garden, where he
was flanked by his wife, first lady Me-
lania Trump. But he told the turkeys
that, “unlike previous witnesses, you
and I have actually met. It’s very un-
usual.”
Trump’s Republican defenders in
Congress had criticized Schiff for
holding closed-depositions in a se-
cure room in the basement of the Cap-
itol Visitor Center, which Democrats
said was necessary for the investi-
gation. Trump has criticized the im-
peachment inquiry as both a “scam”
and a “hoax.”
Trump also has claimed to barely
know some of the witnesses — includ-
ing Gordon Sondland, Trump’s ambas-
sador to the European Union — who
testified during public impeachment
hearings chaired by Schiff, a Califor-
nia Democrat. Testimony from sever-
al officials showed that Sondland had
been in frequent contact with Trump

Shifting drivers’ license
responsibilities to
another department isn’t
addressing the issue
Michael Watson’s signature campaign idea
of moving driver’s license services from the
Mississippi Department of Public Safety to the
Secretary of State’s Office should be shelved,
if not by him, then by the Legislature.
If there are problems with long wait times
for driver’s licenses, as has been reported,
then the solution is improving the staffing and
processes within the state agency logically
in charge of this responsibility, rather than
creating a new level of bureaucracy.
Watson, the newly elected secretary of
state, has other priorities, however, that are of
great merit and should be pursued.
He discussed some of those this past week
with the Clarion Ledger newspaper. Among
the good ideas:
- Scrapping the two-tier election process
to which he and other statewide officials are
subject.
Requiring a governor or other statewide
candidate to win both a majority of the popu-
lar vote and a majority of the state’s 122 House
districts had a pernicious intent when those
provisions were included in the 1890 constitu-
