As many of you know, I have been very active in overturning a number of executive actions by my predecessor. However, I have been informed by the White House counsel’s office that Tater and Tot’s pardons cannot, under any circumstances, be revoked.

I recognize that there’s, like a 90 percent chance that this particular reference is a joke, even if Donald Trump’s obsession with Barack Obama is 100 percent real. In any event, it’s great fun to imagine how that dialogue might have played out.

DONALD TRUMP [excitedly rushing into office]: Hey! Hey, Don!
DON McGAHN [startled]: Uh, what’s going on, boss?
TRUMP: Can I revoke He Who Shall Not Be Named’s pardons of the last two turkeys?
McGAHN: [laughs politely]
TRUMP [frowning]: What? What’s funny?
McGAHN [blushing]: Oh, uh… Wait, are you serious?
TRUMP [growing visibly annoyed]: Why would I joke about something like that?
McGAHN [sweating a little]: Sir, respectfully, I don’t know if you’ve been following the news lately, but our legal team here is kind of busy with some very important stuff right now!
