Feel-good memes surrounding Biden’s bromance with Obama — both men have spoken at length about their close relationship — have been the stuff of social media legend for a while now.

He also noted that the memes about his relationship with Obama resonate online because they relay something about his friendship with the president that is “all true.” [image via screengrab] — Follow Justin Baragona on Twitter: @justinbaragona
