The White House press corps seemed more concerned with other issues during the president’s appearance today, but he does have a birthday coming up on Monday, after all.

How did this empty suit, leaning on his elbow on the podium, begging for birthday wishes, ever get elected president? pic.twitter.com/NdFuiT2z8X

Obama, There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age 11. RAH #tcot

Israel is pounded by missiles, Russia is invading Ukraine, there's an Ebola epidemic, and Obama wants the press to ask about his birthday.

Obama: "I thought you guys were going to ask me about my birthday. What happened to that?" This is beyond a joke.
