Cory and Shawn, Nick and Schmidt, Barack Obama and Joe Biden — all are modern-day bromances, but only one of these duos are real-life best friends.
Admit it, Obama and Biden have the kind of friendship that most of us wish we could have with a person — you know, instead of your cat.
Although the former president and vice president came from very different backgrounds, they joined together over eight years ago to better the lives of the American people, and in the process became BFFs.
During his farewell address, Obama said choosing Biden as his vice president was the best decision he made.
“…Not just because you have been a great vice president, but because in the bargain I gained a brother,” Obama said, speaking directly to Biden from the stage. “And we love you and Jill like family, and your friendship has been one of the great joys of our lives.”
And in January, just days before leaving office, the pair took their bromance to the next level when Obama surprised Biden by awarding him the Presidential Medal of Freedom with Distinction — an honor only three other people in the last three presidencies have received.
The pair even have friendship bracelets to prove their BFF status. But just in case you need more proof, here are 16 times Obama and Biden were the epitome of #friendshipgoals.
