People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals today accused President Obama of “pimping” for the poultry industry with his annual pardoning of the official Thanksgiving turkey, but not condemning the killing of 45 million birds for the annual American feast.

In a video and letter to the president, PETA’s President Ingrid E. Newkirk said that Obama should instead set a new example for the nation by eating a vegan meal.
