Former Vice President Joe Biden had another viral Twitter moment on Wednesday when Morgan State University graduate Brieana Carter posted a six-second video of a selfie with Biden in which the former vice president kissed her on the cheek.

Biden, who spoke at Morgan State’s commencement ceremony in May, gave Carter a peck on the cheek after her third attempt at taking a Snapchat selfie with the vice president. 

{mosads}Carter captioned the video “papajoe” with a heart emoji, and was showered with praise on Twitter for her video. 


Biden is known for viral moments like these that can sometimes become awkward. Last year, he raised eyebrows for a bizarrely long hug with then presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. He also appeared in a viral meme series about his “bromance” with former President Barack Obama.
