Obama’s best dad jokes from the official Thanksgiving turkey pardon

We can’t lie: we love Obama, if for no reason other than that he reminds us of our own dads. Well, maybe he’s a *little* bit cooler than our dads, what with his strangely trendy sense of style, but he, like our dads, has a bit of a questionable sense of humor. Obama’s dad jokes from the official Thanksgiving turkey pardon are flawless, and we’re still giggling over here. Obama’s turkey puns at the turkey pardon were definitely worthy of both an eye-roll and a smile in the way that only a dad joke can be.

We found ourselves both cringing at the POTUS’s dad jokes, and loving him even more. TBH, Obama’s best dad jokes from the official Thanksgiving turkey pardon will be on repeat throughout our Thanksgiving dinners, and we don’t hate it.

Seriously, you just have to watch Obama laughing at his own dad jokes. It’s one of our favorite Thanksgiving traditions!


See? We told you it was worth it. Oh, Obama. We hope you continue to make yearly turkey pardons as promised, and that you share them with us for the next million years.

Here are Obama’s best dad jokes from the official Thanksgiving turkey pardon:

The one about making sure no one goes hungry… except for the turkeys, obviously.

"We should also make sure everyone has something to eat on Thanksgiving. Of course, except the turkeys, because they're already stuffed."

The one where he talked “vice turkey.”

"Tater is here in a backup role just in case Tot can't fulfill his duties. So he's sort of like the vice turkey. We're working on getting him a pair of aviator glasses."

The one where he made “yes we cran” a thing.

"When somebody at your table tells you that you've been hogging all of the side dishes, you can't have any more, I hope that you respond with a creed that sums up the spirit of a hungry people: 'Yes, we cran.'"

And, of course, the one where he promised to never stop with the dad jokes on Thanksgiving.

"What I haven't told them yet is we are going to do this every year from now on. No cameras, just us, every year. No way I'm cutting this habit cold turkey."

TG for dad jokes. As much as they horrify us, we know we’re a little happier because of them.
