Democratic Presidential frontrunner Joe Biden tweeted out a photo of a friendship bracelet with his and former President Barack Obama’s first names embroidered on it. The odd tweet raised eyebrows across Twitter as the tweet seemed, at best, to be a poor attempt at humor or, at worse…something else entirely.
This is a joke, right?

Twitter: This is pathetic and almost outrageous.

The tweet just doesn’t seem to make much sense, even as a joke. Especially from a former Vice President with his eyes on the White House in 2020. So what else could the picture mean? Is the picture an inside joke? Or is Biden trying to send a message? And if so, to who?
There were four charms connected to the friendship bracelet: a flower, a smiley face, a star, and, oddest of all, a slice of pizza. What could the significance of these symbols have for Biden, if any?
As usual, we are left with more questions than answers.
