The Internet is reacting to the election with Joe Biden memes

As the Internet is wont to do, it isn’t too long until a big cultural event is turned into a meme.

As for this year’s election results, one Titter user has turned his frustration about Donald Trump’s win into an opportunity to communicate his frustration through Joe Biden memes.


The memes, which you may have seen pop up on your Facebook and Twitter timelines this week, involve President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. They often portray Biden plotting some sort of prank for president-elect Donald Trump, while Obama jumps in as the voice of reason and rebukes him.

As of three days ago, the posts now have their own community on Reddit: r/bidenbro.

Many of them appear to be the work of one man, Josh Billinson, who started tweeting the memes Nov. 10. The first one is an homage to “Step Brothers,” the 2008 Will Ferrell comedy.

Since that tweet, Billinson has created several Biden-related memes, an activity that he said was a great honor for him.

Biden, who decided to not run for president in 2016 after the 2015 death of his son Beau Biden, has often been the subject of Internet fandom. His hot mic moment where he called the Affordable Care Act “a big f—ing deal” and a recent interview where he said he was “not a big fan” of former congressman Anthony Weiner are just two such moments.
