Who didn’t see this one coming?
Rubbing salt in the wounds of legal U.S. citizens and people who celebrated a beautiful and uniquely American holiday Thursday, President Obama used a televised Thanksgiving tradition to gloat about his self-granted powers to do whatever the hell he wants.
As he pardoned the White House turkeys, a tradition said to have officially started with President George H. W. Bush, according to a White House history of the practice, Obama began his remarks with this divisive and insulting remark:
“I’m here to announce what I’m sure will be the most talked about executive action this month.Today I’m taking an action, fully within my legal authority – the same kind of action taken by Republicans and Democrats before me – to spare the lives of two turkeys, Mac and Cheese from a terrible and delicious fate.”
Way to lead a hurting country, Mr. President. Haven’t you divided us enough?
