Here, Remember the Good Old Days of Obama and Biden Memes
Those were the days of our lives ...
The era of Barack Obama and Joe Biden memes was a fun time to exist on the Internet and in the greater universe. They were just two bros, administrating from the White House and having a ball while doing it. Now, we only have sad memes about the mess that our country is in. So let’s take a look back at the world that Biden and Obama gave us. Try not to cry.
Even the president joined in on the meme trend to celebrate Joe’s birthday.
ME: Joe, about halfway through the speech, I’m gonna wish you a happy birth–
BIDEN: IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!
— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) November 20, 2017
Most of the memes involved the president telling Joe to do something and Joe doing the opposite.
Obama: Wave at the people, Joe.
Biden: IMMA POINT AT’EM
Obama: Please just wave.

They are all in good fun though and now, they give us a sense of longing for a better time when Biden and Obama jokes were all the rage.
BIDEN: How come you’ve never shown ME the swamp?
OBAMA: Drain the swamp is a metaphor, Joe.
BIDEN: Where will Shrek live? pic.twitter.com/xEKzJJpazZ

Most centered around their friendship: Biden never wanting to leave Obama’s side. Can you imagine such hilarity, levity and warmth surrounding Trump and Pence?
“No, Joe the debate is on”
“Just turn to ESPN real quick. I wanna see the score”
“You have your own TV”
“It’s scary in my room.” pic.twitter.com/RAz6cv5Q7v

And some were a little more conspiratory against 45.
Biden: I told him that we call in attacks on countries by blocking them on Twitter.
Biden: Trust me. pic.twitter.com/9ipIoFPDeg

The memes came from a place of love (or at least the good jokes were). We loved Joe Biden and Barack Obama and so we wanted to share their poignant friendship through memes.
Obama: It’s too hot for a scarf, Joe.
Biden: IMMA DO THE SCARF WHIP
Obama: Please don’t do the scarf whip.

Obviously though, when we got a new president, it meant the end of an era.
The saddest thing about this US election is that we won’t get to see Joe and Barack in moments like these anymore. pic.twitter.com/pcOLLFKJGt

A lot of memes began to center around Joe trying to sabotage the White House before Trump got there.
Biden: can i put whoopee cushions under all the chairs before he gets here
Obama: joe im on the phone
Biden:*muttering* u didnt say not to pic.twitter.com/qfjh3ffkPE

But then, of course, a lot of them were about Joe and Obama just loving each other.
Obama:tell the world were bros
Biden:*whispers* were bros
Obama:bro why’d u whisper
Biden:ur my world bro

They’re just two bros who love each other (and America).
Obama: I have a meeting.
Biden: I have a meeting.
Obama: Stop copying me.
Biden: Stop copying me. pic.twitter.com/s0PrZIG4Vf

But only if we’re really good do we get the Avengers to come and save the world.
Obama: any good ideas in how to defeat isis?
*Biden raises hand*
Obama: besides assembling the Avengers?
*Biden lowers hand* pic.twitter.com/GzkXoJcGg6

This is one meme that continues to bring us joy and maybe we need to bring it back.
Barack Obama: Joe…
Joe Biden: I’m just saying, the entire staff would let us back in with open arms
Barack Obama: We can’t take over the White House
Joe Biden: But we must. pic.twitter.com/zUYuTTywJ6

Let us remember the good old days, let us remember that the memes were incredible.
