*It’s basically a dumb tradition, but nonetheless, it goes back to 1947.
We’re of course referring to the annual pardoning of the Thanksgiving turkey at the White House by the president.
This year marked the 6th year President Obama has had to the honors and it also marks the 6th year that daughters Sasha and Malia have witnessed it. Well, 6 years ago Sasha was 7 and Malia was 10. Back then, as youngsters, it was something new, something innocent, blah, blah, blah.
But, as they say, that was then. They are now 13 and 16 and like any teenagers that have better things to do, like chat on their phone or troll online, they were not impressed with being there watching their Dad do silly stuff like pardon two turkeys named Mac and Cheese.
And from the GIF above, it’s beyond obvious the prez and the turkeys were literally gettin’ some serious side eye from the girls. Oh yeah, our other favorite part is when Mr. Obama asked Malia if she’d like to pet Cheese (the turkey) … she didn’t hesitate to respond with, “Nah.”
