Twitter celebrates 'Malia Obama Day' instead of Fourth of July -- sparking conservative fury

Both sides of the aisle had a lot to say on Twitter this July 4th.

With the current political climate, many on the left found it more difficult than usual to celebrate the United States.

Rather be uneasy celebrating the day off as Independence Day, many took to Twitter to explain why they decided to set off fireworks and have a barbecue for another reason - Malia Obama Day.
