VIDEO: President Obama Surprises Joe Biden with Medal of Freedom

Vice President Joe Biden was surprised by President Barack Obama during a special ceremony today – he awarded the VP with the highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom with Distinction.

In the video below, you can see the Vice President’s extreme shock at the honor, and as he finds out the news, he turns away to wipe tears from his eyes.

You may remember back in November, Ellen DeGeneres teared up while receiving the very same honor from the President.

    War criminal got medal from Obama? Not surprised. Obama likes criminals, he is one of them. Luckily everything Obama did will be erased. Like he never existed.
