Obama's Turkeys

Separate Rooms at Swanky Hotel

11/24/2010 12:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The two turkeys who will be pardoned by President Obama today spent last night at a swanky hotel in Washington D.C. -- well, technically ... they spent last night in cages at a swanky hotel in D.C.

Apple and Cider -- the luckiest turkeys on the planet -- were hanging out at the W Hotel this morning ... moments before their big moment at the White House.

A rep for the turkeys -- yes, the turkeys had a rep -- told us each bird had their own separate room at the hotel ... with bottled water and "good, clean beds."

Gobble, gobble bitches.

Another disgusting waste of taxpayer's money. Why did each turkey need its own room when they were stuffed into tight cages? Obama is the real turkey in this story, for allowing this to happen. Oh, and btw TMZ, it's "their big moment........", not "they're big moment". Got a job opening for a proofreader? Just asking....

Yes, this is ridiculous. Just as ridiculous as mass raising them and killing about 45 million just for Thanksgiving.

Nice to know the president's little publicity stunts are being treated nicer than the poor in America who are losing their unemployment benefits next week. My family won't even be able to afford a turkey tomorrow so we won't be having a nice Thanksgiving dinner. Thanks, Mr. O!

Calm down right wing loons- every President has had this tradition - it's not being done ANY differently than RONALD REAGAN did it.

At least they're not flying them out to Disneyland - that's where they went from 2005-2009. Gee, who started that one?
So George Bush sent them to Disneyland?

These birds, after they are pardoned, are going acroos the river to Mount Vernon to live happliy ever after.

If Sarah Palin were president, she'd grind them up on national TV for all the little kiddies to see. Then she would pull out their still beating hearts, laugh it up, and Bristol would do a little dance!
