Video of the affair showed that after lauding himself repeatedly in a speech about “Obamacare,” Obama was swarmed at the reception by adoring attendees. Biden, meanwhile, seemed dazed and confused, as he has for the entirety of his presidency. Eventually he wandered off alone.
Later during the meet-and-greet, Biden tried to get Obama’s attention by reaching over his incompetent Vice President Kamala Harris and grabbing Obama’s shoulder from behind. Obama ignored him and continued speaking with his groupies while Biden looked on with a confused frown.
The Republican National Committee’s research team subsequently tweeted the video with the caption “Literally no one wants to talk to Joe Biden.” The video went viral on social media, as did the mockery of the purported Leader of the Free World.
One Twitter user joked that the snub was similar to when “friends say they’ll ‘be right back’ at the bar” but never return. Anothert tweeted that not only was “Biden completely ignored AGAIN, Biden tries to turn Obama around and Obama completely shrugs him off.”
As Tim Young put it, “If you want to know who’s really in charge, watch this video.”
