After one tornado of a year, America could sure use a pick-me-up. There have been so many tragic events to come out of 2016: terrorist attacks, mass shootings, celebrity deaths, and more. One last punch to the gut comes in the reminder that the Obama administration is on its way out of the White House, and with that we'll be seeing much less of naturally charismatic BFFs President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. So, in honor of the irreplaceable duo, I've rounded up the best Obama and Biden BROTUS memes to get you through the coming years.
It seems like just yesterday we were introduced to the two men who are likely to be referred to as America's dads. Although Biden had attempted his own presidential runs in 1988 and 2008, it was the combination of him and Obama that America fell for. Ever since they stepped into office, the friendship they have developed through the years has brought joy to the country. Luckily, that friendship has been documented over the last eight years in some delightful memes, with Biden often serving as the jokester and Obama the serious one who at times has to chastise Biden for his antics.
With so little time left with Obama and Biden, now is an opportune moment to cheer up with a look back at their friendship and let it fuel the next four years with hope. Surely, however the next administration performs, it will not be able to fill the hole in our hearts left by the bromance of these two.
