About

Prankster Joe Biden, also known as Biden Bro, is a series of captioned photographs in which United States Vice President Joe Biden discusses ways to prank president-elect Donald Trump at the White House.

Origin

On November 9th, 2016, Republican candidate Donald Trump was projected to receive over the 270 electoral votes needed to become president-elect of the United States. The following day, Twitter user Mollie Goodfellow posted a photograph of Joe Biden peering out the window captioned with a mock dialogue in which the vice president threatens to assault Donald Trump (shown below, left).[1] Two hours later, Goodfellow tweeted a picture of Biden holding captioned with a scheme to throw the ball at Trump (shown below, right).[2] Over the next four days, the tweets gained over 93,000 and 100,000 likes respectively.
