The meme that keeps on giving.
Senator Bernie Sanders rocked up to the inauguration of the new President and Vice President of the United States dressed for the cold. Clad in a button-up jacket, together with some brown mittens, this was not his first rodeo, and if was gonna be sitting in the cold for hours, he would keep warm.
Never memeing to be a fashion statement, his outfit did not go unnoticed and one photo the American politician has become THE meme of 2021.
The talk of the telly; morning shows, evening shows, celebs and politicians are capitalising on the success and posting their own Bernie memes.
The humble senator even responded to the media attention, he wasn’t aware it became the meme of the day because in Vermont where he’s from, people are less concerned about fashion and more about the cold
In Vermont, we know something about the cold. And we’re not so concerned about good fashion. pic.twitter.com/zDtrToPbun
