Michelle Obama shares sweet birthday message to her 80-year-old mother and Social Media goes crazy


Michelle Obama’s mother, Marian Robinson, turned 80 this weekend, and the former first lady of the United States sent her a lovely message that immediately went viral.

In the caption for the closeup photo, Obama praised her mother, saying that she is her “rock.”

“Happy Birthday Mom! Your unconditional love has made me who I am today. You are my rock. My ❤️,” the former first lady wrote. “I’ll always be your Miche. I love you.”

The former first mother-in-law has also been vocal about her admiration for her daughter, complimenting her daughter’s “grace” as a first lady.

This isn’t the first time Obama has spoken about her close relationship with her mom.
“She completely underestimates her role in who I am. She always says, ‘You came here that way, I just stayed out of your way.’ That’s not how I saw it. My mom is an incredibly intelligent and insightful person about life in general,” she told Essence in 2009.
“From the time we could talk, she talked to us endlessly about any and everything with a level of openness and fearlessness that made us believe that we were bright enough to engage with an adult, that we were worthy enough to ask questions and to get really serious answers — and she did it with a level of humor.”
The message, which has since been retweeted 16K times — favorited more than 167k times — immediately gave everyone the feels.
Within minutes, Obama was flooded with messages of support, a series of silly GIFS bearing the words “I miss you,” and pleas to place a presidential bid (2020).
