Two turkeys receive the annual turkey pardon at the White House

Two turkeys will avoid the dinner table on thanksgiving, all thanks to President Barack Obama.

Both Mac & Cheese of Ohio were spared during Wednesday's annual turkey pardon at the White House.

President George H.W. Bush started the tradition back in 1989.

The two turkeys will now be sent to live out the rest of their days at Morven Park's Turkey Hill in Northern Virginia.
