Not impressed. President Barack Obama undertook the White House’s tradition of pardoning a turkey on Wednesday, Nov. 26, and his teenage daughters were, safe to say, not into it.
While Obama explained the tradition and introduced the two birds amusingly named Mac and Cheese, his teenage daughters Malia, 16, and Sasha, 13, snuck in subtle eye rolls.
“I am here to announce what I’m sure will be the most talked about executive action this month,” the president joked. “Today I’m taking an action fully within my legal authority, the same kind of action taken by Democrats and Republican presidents before me to spare the lives of two turkeys, Mac and Cheese, from a terrible and delicious fate.”
“Let’s face it, if you’re a turkey and named after a side dish, your chances of escaping Thanksgiving dinner are pretty low,” Obama added. “So these guys are well ahead of the curve, they really beat the odds.”
Aside from the fact the birds were named Mac and Cheese, the best part about the entire situation was when Malia responds “Nah” after her father asks if she wants to pet Cheese, the chosen turkey.
