Public display of affection is back at the White House as US president Joe Biden was spotted sharing a goodbye kiss with his wife First Lady Dr Jill Biden shortly before leaving for a work trip.
The President was set to board his Marine One when he turned and kissed his beloved wife. He was heading to visit the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
The 78-year-old leader also told reporters how important that trip was to him, revealing that he had been to the center a couple of times, as a patient and also as a Vice President of the United States. He said:
“I have been at Walter Reed a lot, I spent almost six months there myself as a patient. And in addition to that, as vice president, every single Christmas, we spent all of Christmas Day at Walter Reed.”
While serving as the Delaware Senator in February 1988, Biden was rushed to Walter Reed for surgery to correct a brain aneurysm.
He had to undergo another follow-up surgery before staying in the center for six months to recuperate.
He reiterated that all the patients at the center were all real heroes. The post showing the two powerful love-birds attracted a lot of comments from people who liked how the two publicly show each other affection.
Here are some of the comments:
''Nice not having a fake couple who hate each other in the white house anymore.''
''Love is back in the Whitehouse! . Bravo!''
''This one photo shows more love than any photo of the previous tenants.''
''What an iconic duo.''
''I don’t think I ever saw 45 kiss his wife, possibly because she was always shaking him off. ''
''Finally. Love. Dignity. Respect. Kindness. Set aside the policies even, and just the above is a massive improvement.''
Briefly.co.za recently reported about the two celebrity couple's 45-year-old love story that started way back in 1975.
