If Donald Trump was feeling gloomy about being mocked by Alec Baldwin on Saturday Night Live, he may want to steer clear of social media this Presidents’ Day. (Hey, there’s a first time for everything.)
The annual celebration, originally intended to honor George Washington’s Feb. 22 birthday, has folks giving shoutouts to their favorite commander-in-chiefs. And while Trump — who is spending the day at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla. — has indeed earned some mentions from his loyal supporters, some notable figures are using the opportunity to take #45 down a peg or two.

Other well-known Trump critics also joined in.
On Presidents Day, I’d like to thank the Trump family for my awakening. It drove me to see a psychiatrist, unwrap my own personal injuries, write a book, and film a documentary on white privilege. I am awake because of this presidency, and I choose to stay that way.

I saw a sign that said “Happy President’s Day” and I have never laughed so hard

You sound upset, Donald. Guess you must have been told more bad news about the investigation. Happy Presidents Day! https://t.co/bAMkCu4S0n

On Presidents Day @realDonaldTrump is trying to undermine the institutions of the Democracy that legitimize the Presidency.

Happy #PresidentsDay to a man that made it all look so easy, @BarackObama! P.S. Barack & @MichelleObama, if you're reading this, we’ve learned our lesson. We’ll never take you for granted again. Please come on home. pic.twitter.com/2hdPnhlywE

In honor of #PresidentsDay, lie to everyone you meet and form your own criminal syndicate with the fam. Have fun ‘til the feds show up.

Some social media users chose to sidestep politics and paid tribute to their favorite fictional leaders instead. Time for Big Bird to announce a bid for 2020?
