Biden tweeted congratulations to the actress on Tuesday, a day after she took home her third consecutive Emmy award for her role as the sometimes-blundering Vice President Selina Meyer on the HBO satire.

Reality and fantasy have collided before for the real and fake VPs. In his tweet, Biden included a still image from a video he filmed with Louis-Dreyfus for May’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner.

The pair also shared a lunch at the White House last year.

In an interview with Katie Couric, Louis-Dreyfus described the meal as “embarrassing.” Although the entertainer said Biden “could not have been more charming,” she explained, “I was so unbelievably, profoundly nervous that I had no appetite whatsoever. I couldn’t make a decision about what to eat.”
