Friday marked the first time in eight years that former President Barack Obama celebrated a birthday outside of the White House.
Democrats, liberals and supporters of the 44th president were quick to wish him a happy 56th birthday.
Happy birthday, President Obama! Thank you for all you’ve done for our country. https://t.co/HIk2iSJNkc— Kamala Harris (@Kamala Harris)1501861022.0

But not everyone was as enthused as Obama's supporters.
In fact, Republicans and those opposed of Obama took to social media to celebrate the fact that Obama is no longer in the White House, nor — for the most part — in the public spotlight.
The Republican National Committee took the anti-Obama celebration a step further and tweeted a video of Obama speaking to a group of Americans last June about how then-Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump wouldn't make good on his campaign promises on the economy.
In between Obama's remarks, a news report is played about Taiwanese tech company Foxxconn recently announcing plans to build a new plant in Wisconsin, which is expected to create thousands of new jobs in the Badger State.
Ironically, Obama's birthday — and the RNC's video — came on the same day the July jobs report was released, showing another strong month for the U.S. economy. July was also the month where President Donald Trump reached more than 1 million new jobs created under his leadership.
"1 million new jobs in 6 months. 209k new jobs in July. Unemployment rate at 16 yr low. Thanks, @POTUS!" the GOP tweeted.

Others showed how excited they were about Obama no longer being in office:
I don't think it's a bad thing to wish Obama a Happy Birthday. I mean, he helped Republicans win 1000+ seats.… https://t.co/XsiwrXsPRu— #ThePersistence (@#ThePersistence)1501856663.0
