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.
