Each year the turkeys up for presidential pardon come from an out-of-state farm. This year the turkey pair Tater and Tot are traveling from Iowa. The presidential turkey has its own Twitter feed. Check it out

In a sure addition to the holiday spirits of everyone, Donald Trump will appear today to deliver a Thanksgiving message, his transition team says.

It’s not yet known when Trump will appear. He’s at his Mar-a-Lago place in Palm Beach, Florida, where he’s spending the weekend.

[Trump’s spokespeople] did not elaborate on the president-elect’s activities today, saying the Trump family expects “some degree of privacy” during the holidays.

Hello, and welcome to our live-wire coverage of Donald Trump’s transition to the White House. Know-it-all Newt Gingrich has said that Trump’s bedimpled son-in-law, Jared Kushner, may need an “anti-nepotism” waiver to continue working with Trump, who told the New York Times yesterday that Kushner might achieve peace in the Middle East. (Trump seemed serious.)

“I think they would have to get a waiver to the anti-nepotism law,” Gingrich said on Fox News on Wednesday, in comments snagged by Politico. “That might be a little tricky, although I think if they worked at it, they could do it.”

“It was a pretty easy pick, really, for the president elect” @JasonMillerinDC says of Haley

Asked about Nikki Haley’s diplomatic qualifications, Jason Miller cites her “overseas trade and business recruitment missions”
