For many across the world, the Joe Biden-Barack Obama bromance seems all too real. Indeed, anyone would be forgiven for thinking that these two are life-friends who grew up on the same street. And in the wake of Donald Trump’s victory, some hilarious memes have subsequently sprung up, depicting what we hope and pray are real conversations between the two out-going buddies. So, check out these 20 brilliant Biden-Obama bromance memes.
The expression of despondency on Biden’s face here is palpable. Indeed, he looks like a beaten man who can’t face the reality of Trump’s victory. Fortunately, however, Obama is there to offer solace in the form of ice cream.
Meanwhile, the bromance evidence here is undeniable. While Obama wants to get cracking with the packing, Biden is keen to show him his Biden-Obama flipagram. And of course, Obama just can’t resist.
Next, Biden has his game face on and looks set to nail Trump as soon as he walks through the door. He’s got his grip ready, and his eyes are focused on the door behind Obama. With any luck, Obama’s “No, Joe” didn’t work.
This meme brilliantly takes aim at the controversial issue of Obama’s nationality. Biden is painted as a mischievous schoolboy who wants to plan the ultimate mind-game prank. And Obama certainly looks a little tempted.
If you saw the Obama-Trump meeting you’ll know just how awkward it was. But at least Biden has finally taken the higher road and offered some solid advice to Obama. That said, Obama still won’t look at his successor.
Here, Biden seems like a petty teenager who’s trying to get one over on his ex-girlfriend. Furthermore, the presence of a young – and unimpressed – woman makes this meme that much funnier.
In these memes Obama always appears to be the older, more rational person, even though he’s 20 years younger than Biden. Here, the current vice president wants to punch president-elect Trump, but Obama calms him down.
Biden’s pettiness is taken to a whole new level in this meme. In fact, even in the face of an emergency, Biden won’t call Trump by his new title. Obama, meanwhile, isn’t having any of it and focuses on his Blackberry.
Once again, 73-year-old Joe Biden is made out to appear like a giddy schoolgirl. He grabs Obama’s hand, asking him not to be left alone, but is quickly reassured.
Clearly this is an old image of Obama, given his relative lack of grey hairs. Furthermore, Biden looks even younger with his tilt and pointing. Imagine if he actually said, “IMMA POINT AT ‘EM”. When you look at that cheeky smile, it seems quite plausible.
It’s hard to think of any other dialogue that would sound more believable. The six cups don’t help Biden’s case, and the fact that he’s sucking down on one makes us think this could actually be true.
Here, Obama’s slightly worried smile combined with Biden’s laugh of pure joy indicates that something rather awkward was said. Biden has his arm around the president when there were five other seating options available.
It’s not clear just who is reciting the words of Run-D.M.C.’s “King Of Rock.” However, let’s go with Biden, as he’s throwing down in most of these memes. In any case, he looks more hip-hop with that accentuated lean.
Obama’s look of fatherly disappointment is undeniable in this one. Biden looks ready for a fight with his two fists held up. In fact, that might not be such a bad idea, given Trump’s stated desire to punch protesters in the face.
A fist-pump between two older gentlemen is a sure-fire sign that they’ve got a solid relationship on the go. David S. Pumpkins is a wacky Saturday Night Live Halloween character played by Tom Hanks.
Most of these memes have something to do with Biden grabbing a part of Obama’s body… and it’s usually his hand. In this one, for example, Biden takes the opportunity to initiate a thumb war. And although Obama refuses to play, Biden starts (and finishes) anyway.
This meme is just plain cute: Vice President of the United States Joe Biden wants the Obamas to adopt him. It seems Biden is always trying to stop any chance of separation from Obama after they leave the White House.
This is one of the few memes where Biden appears to be the more mature politician out of the two. Indeed, he behaves more like a proud father than the cheeky teenager we’ve seen in many of these memes.
Given the smiles on both of their faces, Obama’s “No you didn’t” is probably in jest. Let’s hope Biden didn’t run away giggling – although maybe that’s the reason he’s not carrying a cup of coffee…
