VP Joe Biden takes first selfie with Commander-in-Chief

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Apr 17, 2014

Apparently, if you are the Vice President of the United States, you are still allowed to take a selfie with President Obama.

VP Joe Biden snapped the photo in the back of a White House limo, according to Fox News. He and the President were in Pennsylvania to talk about job training grants.

The caption on the photo, which Biden posted to his brand-new Instagram account, reads: "Found a friend to join my first selfie on Instagram. Thanks for following and stay tuned. –VP"

The selfie was posted April 16 and already has more than 30,000 likes.

Earlier this month, a selfie of Obama and Boston Red Sox baseball player David Ortiz created a stir when it was discovered that Ortiz had a deal with Samsung and the company had re-tweeted the photo.

At that time, the White House said that it was considering banning selfies with Obama.
