Sasha Obama missed out on watching her father, President Barack Obama, deliver his final Thanksgiving Turkey pardon on Nov. 24, but she got into the holiday spirit by doing a good deed. Sasha, along with her parents, served a holiday dinner to U.S. veterans!
Sasha, 16, may be a little too old to see her father crack any more turkey puns while issuing a Presidential pardon to a pair of poultry. She skipped out on seeing Barack Obama, 55, deliver his final Thanksgiving proclamation, but she wouldn’t miss a chance to help out the men and women of the United States armed forces.
Sasha, Barack and Michele Obama, 52, all worked at the Armed Services Retirement Home in Washington, D.C. on the evening of Nov. 24, according to Daily Mail. The First Family dished out turkey, mashed potatoes, greens and the rest of the feast for those who have served their country with pride and dignity.
Some fans were a little disappointed that Sasha and her sister, Malia Obama, 18, didn’t make it to the final Thanksgiving event. Well, it’s the last Obama Turkey pardon in front of the White House. “What I haven’t told them is that we’re going to do this every year from now on,” the 44th US President said, according to Entertainment Tonight. “No cameras, just us, every year. No way I’m cutting this habit cold turkey.”
Ugh. No wonder Sasha and Malia had a “scheduling conflict” and missed out on those presidential-puns. . Instead, Barack was joined by his nephews, Austin, 6, and Aaron, 4, who were more than happy to stand next to their famous uncle. “They still believe in bad puns,” Barack joked. “They still appreciate the grandeur of this occasion. They still have hope.”
Sasha seems to be getting a hand on the food services industry. She worked the register at Nancy’s restaurant at Martha’s Vineyard over the summer. It seems that every teenager needs to get a summer job, even the daughter of the President. With the Obamas staying in D.C. until Sasha graduates high school, it means that she can continue her good service and serve Thanksgiving to veterans for years to come.
What do you think about the Obamas feeding Thanksgiving dinner to veterans, HollywoodLifers? Are you going to miss them when they leave the White House?
