Obama's tweet on Charlottesville is third-most-liked of all time

Barack Obama may not be the president anymore but that's not stopping him from making history.

Nevertheless, in the face of tragedy, it was reassuring to see such a calming picture of our wonderful former president looking into a window filled with multicultural babies, while proclaiming, "No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion", an extremely relevant quote by Nelson Mandela.

Then on Tuesday night at approximately 10:07 p.m. ET, Obama's tweet catapulted to the top of the Twitter totem, setting a new all-time record.

One woman was killed and 19 people were injured when a man, who had been a part of a white supremacist rally in downtown Charlottesville, rammed his vehicle into a crowd of people.
