Sad Joe Biden is a series of humorously captioned images based on a photograph of United States Vice President Joe Biden staring out a window during a summit between the U.S. president Barack Obama and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko at the White House in September 2014.


On September 18th, 2014, Getty Images photographer Oliver Douliery photographed Biden staring pensively out a window at the White House during a special summit with the Ukrainian president to address the escalating political tension between the East European nation and Russia.

"US Vice-President Joe Biden looks on during a bilateral meeting between President Obama and President Petro Poroshenko of Ukraine in the Oval Office of the White House September 18, 2014 in Washington, DC. The two leaders held a bilateral meeting to discuss a strategic aid package for Ukraine for its battle with pro Russian separatists."

On December 6th, 2014, Twitter user Michael Doran[2] tweeted the Getty Images photograph and invited his followers to come up with funny and fitting internal monologues for the image.
