Obama is currently trending on Twitter and no it isn't his birthday, it's Donald Trumps. Many Twitter users used the day to honor President Obama with the hashtag “All Birthdays Matter.”
Several phrases began trending on Twitter early on Sunday, including “Obama Day June 14th,” “Obama Appreciation Day,” “Obama Day USA” and “Happy Birthday Obama,” in addition to “All Birthdays Matter.”
The “All Birthdays Matter” hashtag is a reference to the widely criticized phrase “All Lives Matter,” which was created in response to the Black Lives Matter movement. “All Lives Matter” has typically been used to dismiss the support for Black rights and has been denounced by many people.
Some people also used the hashtag to honor the lives of Black people who have died after incidents with the police, such as George Floyd.
Gotta love Twitter!
