Barack Obama breaks his 'no selfies' rule for 'brother and friend' Joe Biden
Former President Barack Obama made sure to welcome back his good friend and Vice President Joe Biden. The internet's favorite bromance made sure to give their fans something to smile about with their selfie which was gladly posted on Instagram.
On a sweet Instagram post that Barack Obama shared last Saturday, he welcomed back his good friend Joe Biden on Instagram after a hiatus. He shared a sweet throwback selfie of the pair, noting that this is one of the rare times he's broken his no-selfie rule.
"My brother and friend @JoeBiden is back on Instagram. Welcome back, Joe—you'll always be one of the rare exceptions to my no-selfies rule."
The photo seems to have been taken during the time they visited the Dog Tag Bakery in Washington DC, which is a bakery that trains veterans and their spouses on the ins and outs of running a business in hopes of giving them a source of income after they've retired.
What seems to be one of their favorite photos, Joe Biden also posted it on Twitter when he wished his president a happy birthday.
Inspiring words from @BarackObama today. A powerful reminder that it's on all of us to vote this fall if we want leaders who reflect the civility, character, dignity, and goodness of the American people. The stakes couldn't be higher, but Americans always rise to the occasion.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) September 7, 2018
"Our lunches together were a highlight of every week at the White House. Last week's trip to @DogTagBakery was no different. Happy birthday to my brother, my friend, @BarackObama."
More than just being partners in the government, these two are actually really good friends. They've made sure to keep close contact with one another despite their retirement, and it has been a friendship that people on the internet have been closely eyeing since.
Meanwhile, since heading back to Instagram, Joe has only posted one photo, which is of him in New York with wounded veterans who walked across the country to raise awareness for their fellow vets who are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injuries.
Just like Obama, Biden's previous Instagram handle @vp which he used during the two Obama administrations has been archived.
