During President Obama's farewell address on Tuesday night, the Commander-in-Chief took a few moments to thank those who supported him the most during his time in office: Michelle Obama, his daughters Malia and Sasha, his staff, and of course, Vice President Joe Biden.
Yes, while making his final official remarks as president, Barack Obama snuck in a quick tribute to his and Biden's unforgettable bromance:
"To Joe Biden, the scrappy kid from Scranton who became Delaware's favorite son, you were the first choice I made as a nominee, and the best," Obama said to his VP. "Not just because you have been a great Vice President, but because in the bargain, I gained a brother. We love you and Jill like family, and your friendship has been one of the great joys of our life."
Biden responded from the front row with a sly finger gun, naturally:

And gave POTUS a standing ovation, along with the First Family and the rest of the crowd:
Then he joined him onstage and gave him a hug:
The internet, still keen on the Biden meme trend, was emotional over the whole interaction.
