JOE Biden proved romance is still very much alive as he paused to pick a dandelion from the White House lawn for wife Jill as they headed to board Marine One. The First Lady , donning a stunning blue Oscar de la Renta dress with yellow fruits on, gazed on gleefully as her husband bent down to pull the flower from the ground before handing it to her ahead of departing for Georgia.

On Tuesday, "the Carters" began trending in the United States on Twitter as a result of the weird wide-angle lens. "I absolutely love the Carters and Bidens, but this is the most insane photo ever," … [Read more...] about Joe and Jill Biden mocked for looking like ‘giants’ in bizarre photo with the Carters
