President Obama had his audience in stitches today as he pardoned the National Thanksgiving Turkey at the White House with some lighthearted jokes.
Everyone, that is, except his own daughters.
Look at that double side eye.
No doubt with something, anything, more important to do than attend a bizarre ritual where the leader of the free world/their dad waves his hands and declares a bird pardoned, Sasha and Malia barely cracked a smile during the entire event.
Like any kids tired of their dad laughing at his own jokes, the girls were having none of it.
I am here to announce what Im sure will be the most talked about Executive Action this month, the president deadpanned.
Today Im taking an action fully within my legal authority, the same kind of action taken by Democrats and Republican presidents before
to spare the lives of two turkeys, Mac and Cheese, from a terrible and delicious fate.
Lets face it, if youre a turkey and youre named after a side dish, your chances of escaping Thanksgiving dinner are pretty low!
Turkeys dont have the best looking heads!
WHEN CAN WE GO BACK UPSTAIRS?
You guys want to pet him? the president asked. Nah, Malia responded.
