Barack, 57, shared a family photo featuring his wife Michelle, their daughters Malia and Sasha, an unidentified woman, and his mother-in-law Marian Robinson. Fans of the Obamas will recognize the picture from almost two months ago when Michelle used it to pass across an uplifting pre-Mother’s Day message.

FAMILY FIRST

This time, Barack used it to underscore the importance of family, even as America celebrates independence. “Happy Fourth of July, everybody!” he wrote in the caption, adding:

“This is always a great day in the Obama family: a chance to celebrate America—and Malia’s birthday, too. Hope all of you are able to get some time with friends, family, and fireworks.”

OBAMA'S FOURTH OF JULY VS. TRUMP'S FOURTH OF JULY

In 2010, while still in the White House, Barack celebrated Fourth of July with a South Lawn barbecue for service members, CBS News recalled. Two years later, he honored the naturalization of US military officers who came to the country as immigrants.

Barack’s traditions stand in sharp contrast to the current President Donald Trump’s military-style Fourth of July event that includes stationary tanks, fighter jet flyovers, and fireworks.

MALIA TAKES CENTER STAGE

With many Americans disillusioned by national ills such as a rise in white supremacy and a growing humanitarian crisis at the border amongst others, Malia’s 21st birthday has gotten quite the buzz on social media.

Twitter users have flocked to the platform to celebrate the Harvard undergrad who just rounded off her second year at the prestigious institution.

“We off that fourth of July [expletive] — tomorrow I’ll be celebrating Malia Obama’s birthday,” one user wrote.

“Good morning, everyone! Excited to celebrate Malia Obama’s birthday today,” echoed another. “It’s a good thing she was born on a day with no other national significance so we can give her the attention she deserves!”

Recently, Malia was with her family as they toured Europe, making a one-week stop in the south of France where she was seen hiking with her dad before heading over to George and Amal Clooney’s palatial home in Italy.

Happy birthday, Malia! And Happy Fourth of July, everyone!
