Here's what Joe Biden is really doing while he makes phone calls

Or so Michelle would have us believe…

THE WHITE HOUSE posted a clip on Vine today showing what’s really going on behind the scenes when Vice President Joe Biden is on the phone with world leaders.

In the brief video, Biden uses a weight to do bicep curls while making a phone call.

“I do a million of these a day,” Biden declares.

The clip is part of an effort to promote First Lady Michelle Obama’s “#GimmeFive” campaign, which encourages people to share five things they do to stay healthy.

In the clip, Biden urges viewers to “just give me five” after boasting about his arm curling prowess.
