OK Dad, we'll laugh at your jokes while you pardon the turkey: Malia and Sasha praise Obama's dad jokes at annual tradition (but he admits they're doing it as a favor)

During today's annual turkey pardoning ceremony, President Obama's daughters Sasha and Malia flanked their father and put on a happy face while he regaled the audience with dad jokes.
'It is hard to believe that this is my seventh year of pardoning a turkey,' the president told the crowd. 'Time flies, even if turkeys don't.'
The first daughters cracked a smile and giggled. 'That was good, that was good,' Sasha Obama said.
'I thought it was pretty good,' the president said back. 'You think it's funny too, don't you?' he said pointing to an audience member.
It was just a year ago that the turkey pardoning ceremony led to the resignation of a Republican congressional aide who suggested that the Obama girls 'show ... a little class' when Sasha and Malia didn't show much interest in the ceremony.
This year the sisters giggled along with their dad throughout, as the president seemed downright giddy after the more serious statement he had to make at the White House this morning concerning the recent ISIS attacks in Paris and how the United States is dealing with the threat.

'Abe is now a free bird, he is TOTUS, the turkey of the United States,' Obama proclaimed at today's White House ceremony.
Calling America a country of second chances, Obama explained that Abe would live his life comfortably on Morven Park's 1,000 acres, complete with a barn called the White House on Turkey Hill.
'Which actually sounds pretty good,' the president said.
'If for some reason Abe can't fulfill his duties to walk around and gobble all day, Honest is in an undisclosed location, ready to serve as the TOTUS in the TOTUS line of succession,' Obama explained.
A loud gobble then interrupted the president, causing Sasha Obama to start to laugh.
'OK, that was funny,' she said

The president then took a brief moment to acknowledge his teenage daughters.
'I'm going to publicly thank Malia and Sasha for once again standing here with me during the turkey pardon,' Obama said. 'They do this solely because it makes me feel better. Not because they actually think that this is something that I should be doing.'
The president said as he's gotten older 'you appreciate when your kids just indulge you like this.'
He took time to talk about the family's service project, serving 'less fortunate turkey brothers' to homeless vets in Washington, D.C., as he thanked military members currently in the armed forces for their service.
The whole family had visited the Friendship Place homeless center that day to serve up Thanksgiving dinner to dozens of hungry homeless veterans.
Obama also acknowledged he was thankful that the turkey pardoning ceremony, as 'silly' as it is, gave him an opportunity to wish Americans a happy Thanksgiving.
'I'm also grateful for the fact that the Bears are going to beat the Packers this weekend,' he said.
And with that, he stepped down from his podium, and tried to pardon Abe, who gave out a loud gobble.
'Don't interrupt,' the president said to the bird, before waving his hand over the large turkey and then leading his daughters back into the White House.
