On Friday, former President Barack Obama is celebrating his 56th birthday. This is his first birthday in 8 years that he will not be celebrating in the White House.
The former president is reportedly spending his birthday in Martha’s Vineyard, where he and his family spent seven out of eight summer vacations during his time in office. He is celebrating his 56th birthday with former First Lady Michelle Obama and their daughters, Malia and Sasha Obama.
Michelle Obama posted two throwback photos of the former president’s 43rd birthday celebration on her Instagram account. She said that her husband is the "same phenomenal guy I married nearly 25 years ago."
Former Vice President Joe Biden posted a photo and sentimental statement to his Twitter account to send happy birthday wishes as well. He called Obama's friendship and brotherhood a "great gift."
Others are taking to social media to wish the former president a happy birthday and to thank him for his service to the country.
Happy birthday to our former president, Barack Obama. Regardless of political views, we are thankful for anyone who is willing to give up their time to support this country. In other presidential news, a 9-year-old boy just sent the sweetest letter to President Trump, and his wish is being granted.
