In an apparent miscommunication, the belligerent press kept peppering President Obama with real questions at Friday’s White House press conference.
Did those insubordinate, pestilent bastards really ignore the “it’s all about me and my birthday” memo?
In the same press conference that featured Obama aiding our enemies ( again) by telling the world, “we tortured some folks,” he gave us all the gift of painful awkwardness. Begging for birthday wishes, from the unrelenting press might have been funny if it wasn’t so pathetic.
In any case, Twitter was available to cheer him on – sort of.
Here are some tweets gathered with the help of Twitchy:

How did this empty suit, leaning on his elbow on the podium, begging for birthday wishes, ever get elected president? pic.twitter.com/NdFuiT2z8X

Obama, There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age 11. RAH #tcot

Sorry for the delay, your grace. RT @HuffPostPol: Obama: “Somebody finally wished me happy birthday!”

So did Obama really only hold that press conference to get someone to wish him happy birthday on live TV?

Obama: “I thought you guys were going to ask me about my birthday. What happened to that?” This is beyond a joke.
