Obama Pardons His Final Turkeys With a Slew of Dad Jokes

obamaPresident Obama pardoned his final two turkeys as president today, and he couldn’t help but rattle off a few bad dad jokes.

Obama was joined not by Malia and Sasha this year, but by his two young nephews who haven’t yet grown tired of this annual tradition (and his jokes.

He said that he’ll be continuing the tradition of pardoning turkeys once he’s a private citizen because, Obama explained, there’s “no way I’m cutting this habit cold turkey.”

Yeah, there was a lot of that (including, for real, “Yes We Cran”).

Obama acknowledged the rather large number of dad jokes he was throwing out, admitting that since this is his final one in office, he wants to use all the jokes and leave “no leftovers.”

And then, finally, the president pardoned the turkeys, named Tater and Tot. No, seriously.

Watch and enjoy all the dad jokes above, via CNN.
