Across the internet, there have been a wide range of reactions to the election of Donald Trump. Many have expressed support for President Obama or resistance against President-elect Trump. Others have chosen to take a more lighthearted approach to the situation: memes. Their response is conscious of the fact that, on Inauguration Day, the country will also be saying goodbye to Vice President Joe Biden.
Over the past eight years, Biden has proven to be a gaffe-prone but eminently likable part of the Obama administration. In recent days, the internet has fallen in love with him all over again, unleashing scores of new and revitalized memes. Whatever the impetus for their resurgence — whether it’s venting frustration with the election or delivering a fond farewell to the veep — they make for some good laughs.
