President Obama shares his birthday of August 4 with someone else that is a prominent figure in the White House.
That would be Helen Thomas, the dean of the White House Press Corps.
Helen Thomas is that fiesty little lady sitting in the front row of the press room that always gets a question during press briefings. Now she serves as a columnist for Hearst Newspapers.
What was cool Tuesday is that everyone in the press room sang “Happy Birthday” and President Obama passed out cupcakes and gave Thomas a birthday kiss on the cheek.
