Biden Awarded Medal of Freedom
With seven days till the inauguration of President-Elect Donald Trump into the White House, American politics is in a period of transition and the current Obama administration is tying up loose ends. Involved in this process was the surprise award of the Medal of Freedom to Vice-President Joe Biden which occurred last night in front of family and colleagues.
The Medal of Freedom is the highest civilian award available in the United States, and is awarded for “an especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, world peace, cultural or other significant public or private endeavours.”
Biden was visibly taken aback by the news and praised his President and friend, Barack Obama; to which Obama replied that it would give the internet one last time to joke about their ‘bromance’.
It is this bromance which has led to the creation of memes which have experienced something of a renaissance in the final days of the Obama administration. So here’s to you, Obama and Biden: https://www.inverse.com/article/23764-best-joe-biden-memes
