WASHINGTON (CBSMiami/AP) — The alleged awkwardness surrounding a transition from Democratic President Barack Obama to Republican President-elect Donald Trump is turning into viral memes on social media.
It’s prompted the internet to imagine some amusing chats between Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.
One of the memes includes a picture of Biden clutching Obama’s hand in the Oval Office. The imagined conversation has Biden pleading with Obama, “don’t leave me with them.” Another joke has Biden asking Obama if he could put whoopee cushions under the chairs before Trump’s arrival at The White House. Another meme shows Biden looking at a computer, musing how he can throw everyone off “the White House Netflix account.”
Here are just some of the notable memes going around social media:
“barack please don’t leave me with them”
“joe you’re leaving when I leave”
