So over it

Malia and Sasha Obama were hilariously bored at this White House Thanksgiving event

“Daaaaaaad! Why are you making us DO THIS?”

ANYONE WHO HAS ever been a teenager (so, everyone) will know of the extreme boredom that accompanies most family gatherings.

You’re usually able to get away with a few scowls and eye-rolls here and there. Not if your dad is the President of the USA.

The annual ‘turkey pardon’ is a tradition at the White House which sees the President ensure that two turkeys will not end up as someone’s dinner on Thanksgiving. It’s a bit of a silly tradition, and this year the teenage Obama daughters were not afraid of showing that they were O-V-E-R it.

Those scowls.

That half-hearted clapping.


Those near eye-rolls whenever their dad made an extremely dad-like joke.


Oh girls, we know the feeling.

What’s more, MSNBC reports that when asked if she would like to pet one of the pardoned turkeys, named ‘Cheese’, Malia (16) simply responded: “Nah.”

Teen angst. Is anybody safe from it?
