Barack Obama has vocalized his support for Joe Biden after viral videos appeared to show people flocking to speak with him instead of the current president.

The footage was captured on Tuesday during the former president's first visit to the White House in five years, per the New York Post.

The videos were later shared on Twitter by the right-wing account, Republican National Committee Research.

One clip - captioned, "Literally no one wants to talk to Joe Biden" - shows the POTUS turning around while on stage only to find nobody to talk to. He hilariously holds in hands up, seemingly feigning surprise, as he turns around to see a group of people surrounding his former running mate.

A second video, then shows Biden looking rather forlorn as a smiling Obama - standing alongside Vice President Kamala Harris - shakes hands and greets guests as the band plays in the background.

The RNC captioned the clip: "This is so sad".

And despite the fact that the clips have been cut short and shared without any context, they have still amassed more than a combined 5.4 million views since being shared on Tuesday.

In reality, a longer version of the first video shows Biden turning around to look for Sec. Haaland. After spotting her, he calls her over and attempts to introduce her to Obama.

Additionally, after the clips were discussed by Fox commentator Tucker Carlson, one Twitter user shared a longer version of the second viral video that showed Obama quickly turning around to speak with Biden.

Check out how the moments really played out in the videos below:

And although the edited clips have resulted in Fox News and some Twitter users poking fun at Biden, Obama was quick to take to the platform to express his support for his former Vice President.

Sharing a photo from the event that had been posted to Biden's official Twitter account, Obama wrote: "Always great catching up with @POTUS. Thanks for all you’re doing to help even more Americans get access to quality, affordable healthcare."

Biden's original tweet regarding the 44th President visit read: "It’s an honor to welcome my friend President @BarackObama back to the White House. I look forward to discussing the big step we’re announcing today that would expand coverage under the Affordable Care Act for families and lower health care costs for hardworking Americans."

Tuesday's event was held in order to discuss ObamaCare, and throughout the day, the former running mates made several jokes alluding to their previous working arrangement.

At one point, Biden even referred to himself as "Joe Biden, Barack Obama’s vice president", before saying how Obama's presence in the White House brought back "so many good memories."

Additionally, Obama also called the POTUS "Vice President Biden", before adding: "that was a joke".
