Obama Teases Critics Of His Immigration Action While Pardoning Turkeys

President Obama on Wednesday partook in the annual White House tradition of pardoning two turkeys in celebration of Thanksgiving.

This year he used the official pardoning ceremony as an opportunity to comment on and poke fun at the conservative backlash over his recent executive actions on immigration.

"I am here to announce what I'm sure will be the most talked about executive action this month," Obama said. "Today, I am taking an action fully within my legal authority, the same kind of action taken by Democrats and Republican presidents before me, to spare the lives of two turkeys, Mac and Cheese, from a terrible and delicious fate."

"They'll get to live out the rest of their days respectively at a Virginia estate with 10,000 acres of roaming space, Obama continued. I know some will call this amnesty."

2. It's like he said, 'fuck it - what can they do?'

 

I think his attitude is because he knows that the GOP will refuse to compromise these last 2 years. Just like the first 6, yet now he doesn't have to worry about getting re-elected.
