Joe Biden is available for all your Instagramming needs


Hey Isn’t that…Vice President Joe Biden amiably posing for pictures at Le Diplomate in Logan Circle on Wednesday night. According to our tipster, Biden and wife Jill, who’ve been spotted at the always packed French bistro before, enjoyed a quiet dinner with Secret Service dining just a few tables away.

In the photo above Biden obliged birthday girl Marisa Raether (middle), who couldn’t resist the opportunity to snap a pic with the Veep. “When he was walking back to his seat I stood up and said, ‘Excuse me Mr. Vice President, I’m sorry to bother you, but it’s my birthday and I was wondering if I could get a photo?'” wrote Raether in an email. “I was a little nervous that Secret Service would stop me, but it was totally fine.”
