Instagram and Twitter shoutouts are the new birthday card in the mail nowadays, and on Tuesday, President Barack Obama got a lot of love from some big names on his 54th birthday.
Among those to send well wishes the president's way include Magic Johnson and Bill Clinton. And just when it looked like John Wall had gotten his dates mixed up and forgotten about Obama's special day, the Wizards point guard took to Instagram to give the leader of the free world some love.
Take a look at Wall's picture of him and Obama here:

It may not be an ice cream cake with his name on it or a pair of personalized slippers, but Wall calling Obama a #GameChanger is a pretty high compliment, especially coming from an experienced game changer like Wall. Throw in the fact that the 24-year-old kept it respectful and referred to Obama as "Mr. President," and you got yourself all the makings of a solid birthday shoutout.
Hopefully Wall will be able to wish the next president a happy birthday in person -- when he and his teammates take a trip to the White House after winning an NBA title.
