Obama Tweets hilarious meme for Joe Biden's birthday
Barack Obama's really been enjoying his life, post-Presidency. We've seen photos of him kitesurfing with Richard Branson, white water rafting in Indonesia and photographing his wife, Michelle, on a super yacht. And who can blame him? Being President is one of the most stressful jobs in the world. It turns you in Methuselah. If you look at a picture of Obama from 2008, and then a picture form 2016, he's aged about fifty years. Now that Donald Trump is President, a lot of us are miserable - including Donald Trump! - but Barry couldn't be happier.
However, No. 44's not spending all of his time in exotic locations. He's also spending a lot of time on the Internet, getting caught up on dank memes. Specifically, a meme about the classic bromance between himself and Joe Biden. If you're not familiar with this one, it's pretty simple: Post a picture of Obama and Biden, then add dialogue where Obama's the straight man, and Biden is an overeager idiot. They're pretty hilarious.
Obama: Wave at the people, Joe.
Biden: IMMA POINT AT'EM
Obama: Please just wave.
Here's some that went viral after the election, when Donald Trump visited the White House:
"You brought him into our home..the one we've shared for 8 years.."
"Joe, he's about to be-"
"He sat in my chair."
Biden: Ok here's the plan: have you seen Home Alone
Obama: Joe, no
Biden: Just one booby trap
Biden: Like heck am I leaving him any ice cream, Barack here take a cone
Obama: Joe you know I'm lactose into-
Biden: Like. Heck.
Joe: I hid all the pens from Trump
Joe: Because he bringing his own.
Joe: HE'S BRINGING HIS OWN PENCE
Obama: you told him Nigel Farage was British Foreign Secretary didn't you?
Biden: I'm gonna throw his wig into the fireplace
Obama: Joe don't
Biden: One Horcrux down, 6 to go
Obama: "Joe, why are you still holding my hand?"
Biden: "I wanna freak Mike Pence out"
Obama: "But why?"
Biden: "Just roll with it"
Pretty great, right? Well, now Obama decided to join in on the fun. He posted his own version of the meme on Twitter to celebrate Joe Biden's 75th birthday:
"ME: Joe, about halfway through the speech, I’m gonna wish you a happy birth--
BIDEN: IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!
Happy birthday to @JoeBiden, my brother and the best vice president anybody could have."
Nailed it! Isn't it nice to read a Tweet from a President that's both funny, and touching? We're used to reading Donald Trump's Twitter feed, which is a raging fireball of negativity. He's always going on epic meltdowns, complaining about the media and attacking his enemies. He retweeted gifs of himself bodyslamming CNN and hitting Hillary Clinton with a golf ball. He called Senator Elizabeth Warren a racial slur. In a particularly low moment, he even retweeted a racist image about Obama! When a rogue Twitter employee shut down his account for eleven minutes, it was refreshing - an all-too-brief break from the madness.
Maybe when Donald Trump's not President anymore, he'll chill out and post some dank memes. I can't image him kitesurfing with Richard Branson.
