National Puppy Day: when Joe Biden-the-human met Joe Biden-the-puppy

A post shared by biden (@bidenthegolden) on

There’s a crazy amount of news about our current First Family of grifters, liars, lunatics and baby-fisted a–holes. So here is my gift to you, on National Puppy Day: photos of former Vice President Joe Biden with a Golden Retriever puppy named Joe Biden. Bless. I’ve never thought about it, but YES, you should absolutely name your dog “Joe Biden.” Especially if he’s a sleepy-looking golden puppy. You can see so many photos of Biden Puppy here at this Instagram. BIDEN PUPPY!

Biden Puppy’s mom is a woman named Sydney who came to Washington this week to celebrate the anniversary of the Affordable Care Act. All Sydney did was bring Biden Puppy to the crowd outside of the Capitol event and Biden the Man saw the puppy in the crowd and came over. Sydney told Buzzfeed: “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. As soon as I told him, his face lit up.”

Here’s Human Biden’s speech about the ACA:

    It hurts. It hurts so much to think about what was and what should have been.

    • Tough Cookie says:

      Yes it does hurt a lot… but this story makes me feel a little better. Thank you, Kaiser.

    • Kitten says:

      Someone posted a montage of Obama singing at different events on FB the other night and it was actually PAINFUL to watch. I mean, I teared up.
      Also, being reminded of how charming, articulate and charismatic Obama is made me wonder once again how anybody could hate that guy.
      You disagree with his policies?
      Ok, but how can you possibly *hate* a guy like Barack Obama?

      Also listening to Pod Save America, and the guys that worked for Obama so clearly love and respect the man. They also talk a lot about his temperament and how he never got angry, always calm and forgiving.
      I just cannot believe that as a country, we’ve fallen so far.

      • Marty says:

        I went down a rabbit hole of watching interviews of the Obamas last night, they’re such genuine people. I still can’t believe the sorry excuse for a human being we have now.

      • Pedro45 says:

        Sometimes I try to imagine Pres Obama saying or doing or tweeting ANYTHING that Trump says or does or tweets and then the resulting cognitive dissonance gives me vertigo.
        Try it, but take Dramamine first.

      • Aims says:

        I agree. Obama had a temperament of a leader. He was cool and calm. Never once did I question Obama’s judgment and I felt his openness was refreshing . I honestly don’t know how we got to this point with this leadership . So disgusting .

      • doofus says:

        “Ok, but how can you possibly *hate* a guy like Barack Obama?”

        to be blunt, he was a black guy who DARED to get elected to the highest office in the land. for so many of them, it’s his skin color. oh, they’ll deny it all day long, but that’s it.

      • eggyweggs says:

        I don’t understand how anyone could hate him. Haters gonna hate, though, and I am sure a lot of it comes down to white fragility and a whole lot of cognitive disconnect.

        But let’s not give the haters our power. What we need to do is keep the memory alive. We need to keep reminding ourselves that we lived during this kind, intelligent, incredible man’s presidency. We lived during a time when the kindest, most empathetic, most chic, sophisticated people represented us on the global stage.

        We need to preserve his legacy and not let anyone sh!t all over him. Every time that orange fool talks about how he “inherited a mess” or tries to blame his enormous missteps on the democrats, note it, note just how wrong he is, and in your heart let it fuel your love for Barack Obama burning, like the eternal flame.

      • Elaine says:

        I am sorry to burst your bubble, but Obama did some really shitty things abroad. Yes, he was charismatic and extremely likeable, and I believe he started off his Presidency with good intentions, but he got lost somewhere along the way. Let’s not forget the lives that were destroyed by his drone wars. I recommend “The Done Papers” dossier from The Intercept. It’s horrifying.

      • Kitten says:

        @Elaine-From my comment: “You disagree with his policies? Ok, but how can you possibly *hate* a guy like Barack Obama?”

        My comment wasn’t about Obama’s politics but Obama as a PERSON. Thought I made that clear.

        I listen to “Intercepted” with Jeremy Scahill every week and I don’t need to be directed to The Intercept because I know the site (and have read “The Drone Papers”) very well.
        And hey guess what? I only agree with Scahill and Greenwald maybe 40-50% of the time, but I listen and read because I think it’s important to be challenged on existing political views.

        But Elaine if you think they don’t have an agenda then you are sorely mistaken. The Intercept is adversarial journalism and just because Greenwald is a very intelligent guy, don’t think he doesn’t troll with the best of them.

        “People say things, you assume they are lying, and dig for documents to prove it.” That’s from the guy who insisted that Obama would never pardon Chelsea Manning (he commuted her sentence which is not a small thing) and the guy who defended the corrupt Citizens United decision on First Amendment grounds.

        That quote says a LOT about Greenwald’s particular style of journalism.

        And on political matters, I’m sorry to burst YOUR bubble but as a liberal pragmatist, I think Obama’s presidency was pretty damn solid–not perfect–but solid and nothing Greenwald says about Obama will change my mind about that.

    • PunkyMomma says:

      I literally have been in a state of grief since January 20th. I cry when I see Joe Biden, and I will be forever missing the Obamas.

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      Kaiser, thank you for this sweet and much-needed post. Truly, just for your opening sentence (“There’s a crazy amount of news about our current First Family of grifters, liars, lunatics and baby-fisted a–holes.”) you’re my hero of the day. I was feeling like shit, honestly, because of this week’s increasingly horrible and blatantly corrupt Trumpathon, and when I read that sentence I laughed out loud and the world didn’t seem quite such a shitpile. Thanks.

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      Oops, duplicate.

  2. Radley says:

    Too cute!

  3. Lena says:

    He needs a Barry puppy (or kitten) to have a puppy bromance with.

  4. Kitten says:

    STOP IT!!! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

  5. Lightpurple says:

    The one of Biden puppy licking Biden man’s face is pure joy.

    The one of the puppy sitting on the seal is adorable

  6. lower-case deb says:

    in my haste to get to more puppy pics, i misread Biden Puppy’s mom as a woman *from* Sydney who came to Washington to celebrate ACA. cute puppehs are my achiless heel and cause of selective reading.

  7. Insomniac says:

    Yay! Thanks for posting this. Such a nice contrast to the garbage human and his garbage family.

  8. Clare says:

    The best thing about this is that puppy Biden’s mum is a republican staffer who thinks human Biden is the best.

  9. SusanneToo says:

    😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 That’s all.

  10. Leslie says:

    I miss him so much. Sigh.

  11. robyn says:

    OMG … there’s nothing cuter than that puppy!!! A much needed breath of fresh air. I was getting tired of holding my nose throughout this madness called the Trump so-called presidency.

  12. third ginger says:

    VP Biden spurred the Obama administration to come out clearly for marriage equality. Our family will always consider him a hero. Like many Americans, I mourn daily the garbage fire now raging in the “peoples’ house.”

  13. Becks says:

    Oh my gawd… This is the cutest thing ever! Thank you for posting 😍

  14. Izzy says:

    Is it wrong that I hope Puppy Biden peed on the Senate rug? No, that can’t be wrong. I mean, so many of us share that sentiment, right? Right…?


  15. Asiyah says:

    Man I really need a puppy with a bow tie in my life like for real
