Politicians and their spouses from both sides of the aisle took to social media on Father’s Day, paying tribute to the husbands and fathers in their lives.
First Daughter Ivanka Trump, Second Lady Karen Pence and former First Lady Michelle Obama marked the occasion by celebrating their respective husbands’ devotion to their children on their social media accounts, the latter two complete with adorable throwback photographs. Former President Barack Obama also marked the occasion on Twitter, reiterating a line from his farewell speech in January that his greatest accomplishment was being a father to his daughters, Sasha and Malia.
