If you didn’t know, Aug. 4 marks President Obama’s 54th birthday.
And to celebrate his age, full of wisdom and knowledge, we’ve decided to round up some of the president’s most hilarious, funniest, full of life photographs from his Instagram account and that of presidential photographer Pete Souza.
Because if you haven’t noticed, the president has this social media thing down. Remember this tweet?
President Obama isn’t what we’d call a “millennial,” but he sure does possess a youth we envy. And he’s also about his business. Standing at the forefront of the United States as the nation’s leader for almost 8 years, the world has watched Obama navigate an eventful time in office. Barack has led two successful campaigns and faced some of America’s most controversial issues – but now, as POTUS approaches the end of his second term, he can be seen loosening up and showing his personable side even more.
Chief Official White House photographer Pete Souza has captured priceless photos of the charismatic Commander-in-Chief over the years. Throughout sentimental, candid, and focused images, Souza has been able to create a telling montage of the President’s experiences.
Check out our favorite Obama Instagram moments below. And then enjoy some birthday cake…in his honor, of course.
