Joe Biden Hasn't Ruled Out Another Shot At The White House

The departing vice president and forever meme-in-chief, Joe Biden, left the door open for a possible 2020 presidential run and the internet lost it.

Joe Biden, it appears, is not throwing away his shot at the presidency — not definitely, at least.

After presiding over an emotional Senate session, where the majority voted to rename cancer provisions of the 21st Century Cures Act – a medical innovation bill is expected to pass in the upper chamber – in honor of his late son Beau Biden, the departing vice president told reporters that he might not be going anywhere just yet.

The former senator and current meme-in-chief was reflecting on how much he enjoyed working in the chamber over his long career, when he teased his presidential run.

“Yeah, I am,” said Biden when asked if he was planning to run for the office again. “I’m going to run in 2020.”

“For what?” a reporter inquired.

“For president,” he replied. “What the hell, man.”



However, nothing is set in stone.

“I’m not committing not to run,” he clarified. “I’m not committing to anything. I learned a long time ago fate has a strange way of intervening.”

Biden had considered running in 2016 race, but after losing his eldest son to cancer a year prior, he said it was too much for him to bear on the campaign trail.

Even though it is all still up in the air, the internet was just too happy with the turn of events.












Biden is a six-term senator and two-term vice president who ran for president in 1988 and then again in 2008, failing in the primaries.

Also, if President-elect Donald Trump does choose to run for White House again in four years, the debates between him and Biden would be just epic.
