Since the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 on Friday that all U.S. states must recognize same-sex marriages, the Internet has been flooded with parodies of Justice Antonin Scalia’s blistering dissent and President Barack Obama.

One of the most viral is a tweet sent by the Twitter account @JillBidenVEEP, which has been mistaken for the official account of Dr. Jill Biden, Vice President Joe Biden’s wife (who is @DrBiden on Twitter):

Joe is running through the halls with a rainbow flagged tied on like a cape high fiving everyone. #MarriageEquaility #LoveWins #SCOTUS

— Jill Biden (@JillBidenVeep) June 26, 2015

In just a couple of hours, the message was retweeted more than 15,000 times and inspired multiple memes:

President Obama & VP Biden are proof that you need to be equal & compatible in order for ANY relationship to work.
