Supporters of Obama and Biden started the “bromance” jokes on social media during Obama’s presidency, but the two have regularly referenced them in their own social media posts, particularly on each other’s birthdays.

The first appearance of the friendship bracelet came in a 2016 video in which Obama listed the craft as one of several things that are “harder than registering to vote.”

Biden then shared a photo of two bracelets with the names “Joe” and “Barack” for Obama’s 55th birthday.
