President Obama surprised Vice President Joe Biden Thursday with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. "I am pleased to award our nation's highest civilian honor," the POTUS said.
Obama prefaced the presentation with a speech honoring Biden’s service and character.
“To know Joe Biden is to know that love without pretense, service without self-regard, and to live life fully,” the POTUS said. “I’m proud to award the presidential medal of distinction to my brother.”
The award was a surprise. When Biden realized he was being given the honor, he began tearing up and turned around to collect himself.
