Jill Biden and Douglas Emhoff are building a beautiful virtual friendship

Former Vice President Joe Biden and California Sen. Kamala Harris are officially Democratic running mates in the 2020 presidential election. And their two biggest supporters, Dr. Jill Biden and Douglas Emhoff, have already started bonding on social media.

On Tuesday, after Biden announced that Harris was his choice for VP, Biden’s wife, Jill, and Harris’ husband, Douglas, made their friendship social media official.

Jill tweeted “Hey @DouglasEmhoff. Are you ready?” to which Emhoff replied, “Ready to work! Let’s go @DrBiden!”

As spouses of high-profile Democratic candidates — and the potential future first lady and second man of the United States — Jill and Douglas have a lot in common. However, they could have easily remained socially distanced strangers who occasionally interact at campaign events. Think about it. How often do you see Melania Trump and Karen Pence bonding online?

The fact that Jill and Douglas decided to become friends and team up to help win the election is somewhat refreshing to see. And on Wednesday, Biden tweeted a clip of his big VP video chat with Harris that reinforced the new Jill/Doug support team.

“When I called @KamalaHarris yesterday to ask her to be my running mate, I wanted to make sure Jill and Doug got to say hello,” Biden wrote. The four of them then chatted for a bit, and “Jilly” and “Dougey” got a chance to bond over the news.

On Thursday, Jill also tweeted a photo of her and Douglas on the sidelines of the first joint campaign address. (Both were wearing masks, of course!) And on Friday she tweeted a short clip of the two of them walking out to greet Biden and Harris after the address. 

Even their pal Chasten Buttigieg, husband of former 2020 candidate, Pete Buttigieg, is a huge fan of the new virtual friendship.

Biden and Harris better watch out. As this rate, it looks like Jill and Douglas will be the first to exchange friendship bracelets like Biden and Obama did in 2016.
