Obama, Biden Friendship: Michelle & Jill Explain Their Husbands' Bond, 'They'll Go For Long Walks' [VIDEO]

All those memes of President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden bonding actually have some truth to them, according to their wives.

First Lady Michelle Obama and Second Lady Jill Biden spoke with People in a joint interview and spoke on the friendship between their husbands - something that has become a prominent meme over the past few years.

"They'll go for long walks, looking into each other's eyes," Michelle joked in the interview.

"They're going to be eating ice cream together somewhere, I'm sure," Jill added, but did state on a more serious note that they "have a truly beautiful friendship."

The second lady also took note that this was a relative rarity in politics, especially considering how divided America has become.

"I don't think we've really seen a lot of that, especially in politics," she said. "But I think they really love one another."

The first lady observed that the vice president is "the big brother" her husband never had, and that he is truly "somebody that he respects and admires."

Vice President Biden had campaigned to be president in 2008 but ultimately dropped out in January of that year, where he formally endorsed the future president.

"It's the best decision that Barack has made as president of the United States, picking Joe and Bidens as our partners in this journey," said the first lady.

The vice president has largely been a support system for President Obama, reinforcing his ideals on a variety of policy matters and becoming his very close friend.

"We've never had that between a sitting president and a vice president in recent times, one where the friendship and familiarity factor was sky-high," presidential historian Douglas Brinkley explained to The Washington Post earlier this year. He said that Biden fills "the need for the president to be able to talk out loud about one's own mind, to be a sounding board."
