Joe Biden meets a dog named Joe Biden in most Joe Biden story imaginable

Joe Biden is a 4-month-old golden retriever who has a shock of white fur and seems, by all appearances, to be an extremely good boy. Joe Biden is also a former vice president who has a somewhat thinning shock of white hair and also seems, by all appearances, to be an extremely good boy. And, while anybody can just go ahead and name their pet after one of the country’s most beloved politicians, not everybody has the gumption to bring that pet and introduce it to its namesake. And yet that is exactly what Joe Biden the dog’s owner Sydney did, as evidenced by this picture:

Buzzfeed reports that Biden was in Washington to celebrate the anniversary of the Affordable Care Act and also probably to check in on all of those uproarious pranks he hid in the White House for the Trump administration to discover. (We can only imagine what Steve Bannon’s face looked like when he landed on a whoopee cushion in the Oval Office!) As for the two Bidens, the twain converged in the most Biden manner imaginable, according to Buzzfeed:

“As soon as he saw the dog during the actual speech, he pointed at the dog, tapped his friend and then started like cracking up. Right towards the end, I, like, kind of signaled him, and he, like, gave me a wink to come over,” Sydney said.

“As soon as I told him his name was Biden, he started kissing the dog, which is like exactly what I expected Biden would do,” Sydney said.

Sydney said no one was as excited about Biden the pup as Biden the human.

“As soon as I told him, his face lit up.”

Yes, that’s right: Joe Biden the man saw a dog whose face he liked, and it was Joe Biden the dog. Also he can apparently translate any message using a wink, including, “When I am done with this speech, please bring that friendly dog over here so I can become his friend.”

Maybe we can get him to run in 2020?
