Former U.S. President Barack Obama turned out to be more popular than current chief of staff Joe Biden at an event at the White House: the ex-president was surrounded by people, discussing something vividly with him, while the incumbent was spreading his hands alone.

Obama participated in an event dedicated to reducing Americans’ spending on medicine, as the author of the healthcare reform law known as Obamacare.

Having signed the new initiative, Biden wanted to get off the stage to talk to those present. But no one was waiting for him at the edge of the stage, and the current American leader, who held the post of vice president under Obama, spread his hands in surprise.

When Biden looked back, Obama was standing behind him, surrounded by representatives of the political establishment: lawmakers and even Vice President Kamala Harris were discussing something vividly with him. The current American president turned away from them and even waved his hand.
