Barack Obama turned 57 on Saturday and there was plenty of online birthday love for the man heralded as a progressive messiah by those in the media still engaged in a slobbering love affair with the former president.
But one tweet from Jesse Kelly, a Marine Corps combat veteran, thanking Obama for all he did summed up his accomplishments better than most.
Bam! The map from Kelly, a former congressional candidate in Arizona, shows the outcome of the 2016 presidential election by precinct, with red representing votes for Republican candidate Donald Trump and blue representing votes for the Democratic choice,
Crooked Hillary Hillary Clinton.
Leading the charge from the other side of the aisle was former Vice President Joe Biden, who wished “my brother, my friend” a happy birthday.
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

This display of affection even drew a reply from Obama: “My brother from another mother.”

Interestingly, the so-called Rev. Al Sharpton also referred to Obama as his “brother,” which lends a whole new meaning to incestuous politics.

In comparison to Kelly’s tweet that reflected what may prove to be Obama’s greatest legacy — Donald Trump — the former president’s wife, Michelle Obama, tweeted out a birthday wish that, unbeknownst to her, encapsulated her husband’s lack of courage as president.
The tweet features a photo of the couple looking out over what appears to be a barren landscape, devoid of any noticeable beauty.
@BarackObama! The view is always better with you,” Mrs. Obama added.

The former first lady having no idea how much her birthday wish recalls a popular meme with Obama was in office:
Obama: My Work here is done…..#IGReport #ObamaGate #LiarInChief pic.twitter.com/m4aJnivDGZ

Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk did his part to recognize a few of Obama’s policy triumphs that would warrant the photo above:
Since it’s Obama’s birthday let’s review his Presidency:
Gave our enemy Iran billions of dollars
Passed Obamacare & wrecked US healthcare
Highest percentage ever on Food Stamps
Traded terrorists for a traitor
Oversaw creation of ISIS
Largest ever debt increase in US history

Of course, few reached the level of idolatry that liberal film maker Ava DuVernay, who thanked Obama for letting her breath the same air as him.
@BarackObama. It is an honor to be in the world at the same time as you. Let alone the same room. #ObamaDay,” she tweeted.
