GOP trolls fmr President Obama for his birthday – and it was pretty sweet

Former-President Barack Obama spent at least some of his 56th birthday on Friday sorting through numerous tweets from well-wishers, including his wife and former VP.

But the Republican Party decided to mark the occasion a whole other way, by trolling the former president with a tweet about President Trump’s job numbers so far.

The posted video intersperses the former president’s statements about certain jobs “never coming back” with footage of announcements about actual jobs, well, coming back.

Because of President Trump’s efforts and/or business friendly policies.

“1 million new jobs in 6 months. 209k new jobs in July. Unemployment rate at 16 yr low. Thanks, @POTUS!,” said the tweet.

The video includes Foxconn’s plans for a $10 billion Wisconsin plant and up to 3,000 new jobs, but it also could have featured news that came out on Obama’s birthday – a $1.6 billion plant jointly owned by Toyota and Mazda that could feature up to 4,000 jobs, according to Fox News.

Here’s a sampling of Twitter reaction to the GOP’s trolling attempt:
