In Washington, even turkeys can be stars. Here we have journalists covering the turkeys on the rooftop of the W Tuesday as Turkey Federation Chairman Steve Willardsen addresses the crowd. The briefing was packed with media ranging from AP, Agence France-Presse, EFE, NBC News and Politico. President Obama will soon pardon the turkey and his alternate. We think he’s handling the fame well, not letting it go to his flabby neck.

See Politico‘s Patrick Gavin interviewing the esteemed turkeys, Cobbler and Gobbler. “Do these turkeys really deserve the W hotel?” Gavin asks, pressing Willardsen. Watch here.
