OAKLAND, Calif. (KTVU) - It’s Barack Obama’s day and Twitter didn’t forget.
From political leaders and doctors to activists and celebrities, the social media platform erupted with kind, uplifting words for the 44th United States president on the day he turned 57 years old.
And who better to lead the way than Joe Biden, Obama’s former vice president.
Our lunches together were a highlight of every week at the White House. Last week's trip to @DogTagBakery was no different. Happy birthday to my brother, my friend, @BarackObama. pic.twitter.com/0faYjvnPW6— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) August 4, 2018
Then former first lady Michelle Obama tweeted a brief, thoughtful message to her husband.

Happy Birthday, Mr. President.— Nick Jack Pappas (@Pappiness) August 4, 2018
The best gift we can offer is voting against hate in November, and proving we are as powerful as you've always told us we can be.#ObamaDay
Happy Birthday, Mr. President! You’ve inspired many, you’ve empowered many & you even served as a father to the all of the fatherless young men in the world who watched you. You’ll always be a ROLE MODEL! I’m happy to consider every August 4th as #ObamaDay. 🇺🇸❤️ pic.twitter.com/4bsmtXIfgV— Devonte Riley (@Devonte_Riley) August 4, 2018
Happy birthday, Barack Obama! We miss having a president dedicated to providing health care to all rather than stripping it away from everyone including the most vulnerable. And we also miss having a president who, you know, actually won an election. #ObamaDay— Eugene Gu, MD (@eugenegu) August 4, 2018
