We all know that the REAL President of the Internet is some adorable hybrid of Jennifer Lawrence, Louis C.K., the cast of Game of Thrones, Anna Kendrick, Quentin Tarantino, the guy who made the “Turk Dance” GIF, and Froggy Fresh. But today is Barack Obama’s 53rd birthday, so let’s humor him, for 24 hours at least, and say that he’s the President of All Things GIF. He’s certainly earned the distinction.

5. A selfie with Bill Nye the Science Guy and Neil deGrasse Tyson.
