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.

In the national gun control debate, Vice President Joe Biden is viewed as the Democratic party's point man on strengthening the limits of firearm ownership.

In an online town-hall Q&A this week, Biden was bombarded by people skeptical of his efforts to ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines.

One participant asked Biden how he and President Barack Obama reconciled a ban on assault weapons with those already in the hands of criminals.

"How can say this politely?" Biden said. "The Constitution does allow the government to conclude there are certain types of weapons that no one can legally known."

Vice President Joe Biden really needs a reality show, as a recent White House petition called for. He gave Americans a glimpse of why Friday in a Google+ Hangout.

The always-outspoken Veep (and possible 2016 election candidate) went off on a tangent on shotguns, assault rifles, and protecting yourself during an earthquake.

Take a look:

Senate Democrats introduced their 2013 assault weapons ban earlier in the week, a controversial measure that faces an uncertain future in Congress.

President Obama's inaugural address took place just hours ago, but V.P. Joe Biden is already hinting that he wants to replace his boss.

In 2016, that is. At a gathering of influential Iowans Saturday, the gaffe-prone Veep said, "I'm proud to be the president of the United States."

Biden, who unsuccessfully sought the presidency in 1988 and 2008, will be 73 in 2016, making him the oldest person ever elected president.

There's also the matter of Hillary Clinton, Obama's outgoing Secretary of State and the odds-on favorite for the Democratic nomination ... if she runs.

Clinton would be 69 and the second-oldest president elected (after Ronald Reagan), incidentally. Whether either actually runs is anyone's guess.

Still, here are other recent hints that Biden is thinking about it:

The Obama administration will either rue the day it created an online petition system or look at it as one of its signature accomplishments. A little of both, perhaps.

The latest hilariousness to come out of said program is a petition to "authorize the production of a recurring television program featuring Vice President Joe Biden."

Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton

We've seen a petition to classify Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group, for Texas to secede from the union, and for the U.S. to deport Piers Morgan.

Now people want VP reality TV.

"Vice President Joe Biden has a demonstrated ability to bring people together, whether at the negotiating table or at the neighborhood diner," states the petition.

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are expected to launch an administration-wife effort aimed at curbing gun violence, according to reports.

Following the horrific massacre at a Connecticut elementary school, Obama is tasking Biden, a longtime gun control advocate, with spearheading the effort.

Barack Obama, Joe Biden

In remarks from the White House, Obama outlined a process for pursuing policy changes following the shooting, though he was vague on specific measures.

Obama vowed to use "whatever power this office holds" to safeguard the nation's children after Friday's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn.

The Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden, turns 70 years old today. Say it is so, Joe!

  • Cheshire Cat
  • Joe Biden Smile
  • Joe Biden Picture

The gaffe-prone Happy Warrior is the 47th man to hold the #2 spot in the federal government, and likely the first to fake tan or use hair plugs. Just kidding Joe!

Before being elected (and recently reelected) alongside President Barack Obama, he represented his home state of Delaware in the U.S. Senate from 1973-2009.

Vice President Joe Biden is at it again with his controversial remarks on the campaign trail.

During a speech in Nevada, he made reference to Republican V.P. nominee Paul Ryan's book Young Guns, which he co-wrote with other GOP Congressmen ...

"They have guns but no bullets," a member of the crowd shouted.

"Unfortunately, the bullets are aimed at you," Biden replied.

Unlike President Obama, Joe Biden actually showed up for his debate with Paul Ryan last night in Danville, Ky., with the V.P. candidates putting on quite a display.

While both sides could take away plenty of political positives from the vice presidential debate, the general consensus was that it made for great TV.

Some of our favorite celebrity Twitter reactions appear below:

Dennis Miller: "Biden’s incessant smile is reminding me of the Cleveland Indian’s Hat Logo which is reminding me of baseball. Adios."

Donald Trump: "Pretty even debate- no knockouts. However Ryan's closing statement somewhat stronger. What do you think? #VPDebate"
