Confirmed: Al Roker is the man, receives thumbs-up from president, handshake from vice president

Who could resist NBC’s Al Roker? No one, obviously, but you might think twice about shaking his hand after hearing his TMI tale of gastric distress in a White House restroom. But it looks like both President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are totally into the Today show host, and his colleagues in the news business have taken notice.

Reviews for Roker’s special moment with the president and vice president were mixed: was the moment perfection itself, or merely badass?

This next photo is a close as we can bring you to actually being Al Roker. Savor it.

So, what was said in the first interview of Obama’s second term?

Wow. This was the television moment that will never, ever be topped. For decades, people will ask, where were you when Al Roker and Joe Biden shook hands. Wait, what’s that?
