It’s one of the last great American traditions that Donnie D hasn’t desecrated, and he managed to hold it together during yesterday’s White House Thanksgiving turkey pardon.
That doesn’t mean it wasn’t a complete cringe fest, and front and centre to witness it all was Trump’s 11-year-old son, Barron.
Having won a social media contest against a bird named Wishbone, Drumstick was granted a pardon by POTUS, who added that he felt so good about himself during the turkey patting.
Pay close attention to Barron, who can’t even be bothered to applaud his father’s heroic actions:
The Washington Post sums it up as follows:
The audience chuckled; Barron Trump, who stood beside his father, did not. When everyone clapped for the young women from the 4-H chapter who helped raise the birds, Barron kept his arms at his sides. Like Malia and Sasha Obama before him, he seemed unimpressed with his father’s jokes and with this nonsense entirely.
Yup, dad jokes remain dad jokes, even if your father is the leader of the free world.
Barron also had another duty to attend to, the delivery of the White House Christmas tree.
He was also rather unimpressed with that whole spiel, with this from the Chicago Tribune:
“This is a beautiful tree. Thank you so much. We will decorate it very nicely,” the first lady told the Chapmans and other family members. “I hope you can come and visit with us.”
After Mrs. Trump and Barron gave their symbolic approval, the tree was carefully carted off to the Blue Room where, after a slight trim and the removal of a monstrous chandelier, it will take center [sic] stage.
Look at his face:
Hang in there, Barron.
