Joe Biden Joins Instagram, Posts First Selfie with Barack Obama

by at . Comments

The selfie trend shows no sign of slowing down as U.S. Vice President Joe Biden has joined Instagram and posted a selfie with President Barack Obama.

We'll just allow a moment for you to process that statement.

Using the badass Instagram handle @VP, Biden captioned the image "Found a friend to join my first selfie on Instagram. Thanks for following and stay tuned. -VP"

Biden, Obama Selfie!

The pic of VPOTUS with POTUS was taken in the back of the President's armored limo known as "The Beast," and has received over 23,000 likes so far.

Biden also posted the shot on Twitter, grandly entitled "The First Selfie." His cover picture is also a photo of the pair with a tender arm on each other's back.

The first picture the Veep uploaded hours before was of his beloved Ray-Ban aviators in the foreground, with himself in the background out of focus.

Obama is, of course, no stranger to the selfie.

He, British prime minister David Cameron and Danish prime minister Helle Thorning-Schmid infamously took one during Nelson Mandela's memorial service.

Obama and David Ortiz also took one earlier this month at the White House, which turned out to be a shameless Samsung product placement plug.

Not unlike Ellen's Oscar selfie. When Samsung has coopted the trend, it may be time to declare the trend over ... although it's still fun, you have to admit:

Ellen DeGeneres Oscar Selfie
Ellen DeGeneres posts the best selfie ever. Literally the best, in terms of re-Tweets.
