This 'bromantic' moment between Barack Obama and Joe Biden may make you feel better about the US election

Barack Obama called for unity following Donald Trump’s US election victory as delivered his speech with Joe Biden beside him in the Rose Garden of the White House.

Apart from being a heartfelt speech, there was one moment between him and his Vice President people felt particularly grateful for – take a look:

As Obama tried to encourage supporters saddened by Trump’s victory not to lose faith he reminded them he had lost elections before.

Obama said: “I have lost elections before, Joe hasn’t”, to which Biden replied: “Remember, you beat me badly”.

In 2008, Biden ran for the Democratic nomination but didn’t make it past the first caucuses, with Obama eventually choosing him has his running mate.

Some felt 10 years younger. While others are worried about the lols they’ll no longer have. The word “bromance” was thrown around too… But this has happened a lot. And some think the memes of the Obama-Biden friendship will be the pair’s true legacy. Which memes you ask? Well there’s…
