Joe Biden (born Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. in 1942) is the 46th President of the United States. He previously served as the 47th Vice President of the United States under President Barack Obama, and as a United States Senator from Delaware.
Biden, along with his wife Jill, were honored in 2010 at the 8th Annual Sesame Workshop Benefit Gala. The Bidens met some of the most famous characters from Sesame Street, including Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Rosita, Cookie Monster, Zoe, and Super Grover. The gala also marked the 30th anniversary of Sesame Place, leading Biden to sing an impromptu rendition of "Happy Birthday" for the park's social media.
In 2019, Biden commented on Sesame Workshop's Sesame Street in Communities initiative dealing with addiction and substance abuse, stating: "It is wonderful to see Sesame Street raising awareness about the effect of substance use disorder on families. We need to be doing more to help parents experiencing addiction and support children who end up in foster care because of this issue."
