Malia Obama just got a birthday gift truly fit for a First Daughter: Her dad, President Obama, recruited Kendrick Lamar and Janelle Monae to sing “Happy Birthday” to her on Monday.
In case the date seems familiar, July 4 also happens to be our nation’s birthday. Also, you should probably nurse that hangover.
The official White House Fourth of July celebration had to be moved indoors due to inclement Washington, D.C. weather, but that didn’t stop the party. Before publicly acknowledging his daughter’s special day, President Obama praised the military and called this country a “miracle.”
He also used Independence Day to point out that we still have a long way to go before everyone is truly “free”
