Former Vice President and Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden was mocked on both sides of the political aisle over the weekend; with pundits pointing out his “lackluster” schedule and his ongoing “bromance” with Barack Obama.

Joe Biden found himself mocked over the weekend for his corny effort to tie himself to former President Barack Obama, while also coming under criticism from other presidential candidates for skipping the biggest Iowa campaign event of the cycle so far,” reports Fox News.

Biden marked ‘Best Friends Day’ last Friday by posting a pair of “friendship bracelets” donning both their names.

“This is a joke, right?” asked former senior presidential advisor David Axelrod.

“It turns out, the bracelet itself was: BuzzFeed produced a sympathetic and playful video in 2016 of Obama encouraging people to register to vote, showing the president jokingly making the bracelet,” adds Fox.

Nearly 20 Democratic candidates descended on Iowa over the weekend to speak at party fundraiser. Notably absent from the event? Joe Biden.

“When I saw the program for today, I thought the same thing you all did, which is this: Joe Biden must really not like to travel,” said entrepreneur Andrew Yang, a Democratic candidate.

Biden claims he skipped the event to attend the graduation of his granddaughter.

“Jill & I were thrilled to be there today to watch our amazing granddaughter Maisy graduate. Maisy, you make us so proud & we can’t wait to see what you do next with your talent, smarts, dedication and kindness. The future is yours, and Nana & Pop will always be right behind you,” posted the former VP on social media.
