He may be the oldest man to hold the office of President in the United States, but Joe Biden still has it. The 46th president took a little downtime over the long President’s Day weekend to show his granddaughter that his video game skills — particularly at one of the most classic video games ever made — are still top-notch.
On Saturday, Feb. 13, 2021, Naomi Biden, Joe’s granddaughter, shared a photo to her Instagram Stories of the two of them having a race-off in MarioKart.
“Secret Service made an exception and let him drive himself!” Naomi wrote on the photo showing the two sitting next to each other in the arcade-style game. Both had their hands firmly on the steering wheel trying to beat each other out.
“A little rusty but he still won (barely),” she added.
According to New York Post, the 78-year-old President and his family spent the weekend at Camp David. He had nothing else on his schedule, taking the long weekend to unwind and relax with his family. It was likely his first real break since he was announced as the 46th president.
Naomi, daughter of the President’s son Hunter Biden, shared a few more photos of her time hanging out with her Pop on Twitter over the weekend.
“We bought him some swag since it’s Presidents’ Day weekend and he’s ‘literally’ President,” she wrote in her first tweet, which included a photo of Joe in a Camp David hat.

In a follow-up tweet, the photo of Joe in his hat showed off the back, which read, “POP.” Naomi joked in her tweet, “And just to make sure the job title doesn’t get to his head … ”
It’s refreshing to see the President making headlines for something more family-friendly — and especially doing an activity that most 90’s kids can relate to — crushing young people at MarioKart.
