Barack Obama returned to the White House on Tuesday for the first time in five years and, as he started speaking, referred to Joe Biden as “vice president.”
“That was a joke,” Obama said, with the current president and current vice president by his side.
He then gave Biden a hug.
“That was all set up. My president, Joe Biden. Vice President Harris,” Obama said.
Obama was at an event tied to the 12th anniversary of the signing of the Affordable Care Act, as well as a proposed fix to a so-called “family glitch.”
As he started his speech in the East Room, Obama quipped that “I heard some changes have been made by the current president since I was last here. Apparently Secret Service agents have to wear aviator glasses now. The Navy mess has been replaced by a Baskin Robbins. And there’s a cat running around. I guarantee you Bo and Sunny would have been very unhappy about.”
“Coming back, even if I have to wear a tie, which i very rarely do these days, give me a chance to visit with some of the incredible people who serve this White House and who serve this country every single day.”
