As Joe Biden becomes the 46th president-elect of the United States, there’s one photo in particular of the 77-year-old doing the rounds online, leaving many to rename the new president ‘Joe Bi-Damn’.

The resurfaced grainy snap shows Joe as a young politician, wearing a burgundy shirt with his dark locks tousled to perfection.

In a year that has so far offered up very few silver linings, the photo of one, Joseph Robinette Biden Jr in his prime as a fresh-faced 26-year-old has been seized upon with all the vigour that months of lockdown tend to trigger.

First shared by the former Vice-President on Instagram in 2016, the photo resurfaced just in time for election day, shared by Democratic supporters eager to celebrate their candidate in all his glory.

“I know how horny we all get in a pandemic, so just a reminder that young Joe Biden was hot af,” comedian Randy Rainbow wrote alongside the snap on Twitter, unleashing a veritable wave of thirsty democrats looking for a thrill.

“A young Joe Biden lookin' like he'd steal your girl from you with ease,” one fan wrote.

“I would text young Joe Biden at 1:27 am,” another person wrote on Twitter.

Others couldn’t help that point out that current-day Biden is not too hard on the eyes either, with a surprising contingent of Biden lovers coming out of the woodworks to argue their case.

“Silver fox Joe Biden is still sexy as hell. Period,” one woman argued.

“To us, 70-year-olds the old Joe Biden is still hot,” another lady pointed out.

“Hahaha, the man has certainly aged gracefully,” a third agreed. “He’s still got it.”

Since then, superstar Beyonce has also shared the image, with many calling young Joe a ‘snack’ and the photo a ‘thirst trap’ in the comments section.

Other world leaders to get a shoutout on the thread included a young Justin Trudeau who is serving straight up lumberjack vibes as a young Canadian chump.
