President Joe Biden mocked the Republican Party by pardoning two turkeys on Monday.

“The votes are in, they’ve been counted and verified, there’s no ballot stuffing, there’s no game of fowl,” Biden said on the South Lawn of the White House, according to a transcript of the speech.

“The only red wave this season will be if the German Shepherd, commanding, spills the cranberry sauce on our table.”

Biden’s jokes came after a widely touted “red wave” for the Republican Party failed to materialize midterm. The GOP took control of the House but failed to take the Senate.

Biden pardoned two turkeys, Chocolate and Chip, on Tuesday. It was part of the annual pre-Thanksgiving turkey pardon at the White House.

The National Turkey Federation says the two birds hatched in July in Monroe, North Carolina. According to the Associated Press, the birds weigh around 50 pounds each. They were kicked out of North Carolina and had a short stay at the Willard Hotel – a stone’s throw from the White House – before being pardoned by Biden.

This is Biden’s second pardon in Turkey. Last year, he granted a presidential reprieve to Peanut Butter and Jelly, where he made jokes about the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Instead of being watered, these two turkeys are boosted,” Biden said last November.
