President Obama pardoned two turkeys named Mac and Cheese yesterday, saving the birds from becoming Thanksgiving dinner.
It's a tradition that goes back 67 years, but the president's teen daughters Sasha and Malia were not impressed (video below).
“I am here to announce what I’m sure will be the most talked about executive action this month,” joked President Obama, noted MSNBC.
“To spare the lives of two turkeys, Mac and Cheese, from a terrible and delicious fate,” added the president.
However, while he cracked his jokes, Sasha and Malia, 16 and 13, glared at their dad with disdain, reports Gawker.
When President Obama asked Malia if she wanted to pet Cheese the turkey, Malia replied, "Nah."
The turkeys will live the rest of their lives at an estate in Virginia.
