On Wednesday, it appeared that the White House social media team just wasn’t that into Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. After all:
And anyway, it was retired basketball player Bill Russell’s birthday and the White House has priorities and stuff.
Eventually the White House Twitter team figured out how to honor Lincoln in true Obama style.
Can’t have a birthday photo without the narcissist in chief! The only surprise is that his silhouette is so small and doesn’t dominate the picture.
And where’d the White House get the idea for that tweet? The totally independent Organizing For Action tweeted this from its @BarackObama account a few hours before the White House did.
