The Bernie Sanders inauguration meme went viral, and it’s worth enjoying

The Bernie Sanders inauguration meme went viral, and it’s worth enjoying

I would like to preface this by saying I like Sen. Bernie Sanders. I voted for him in two primaries. This story is not about mocking Bernie Sanders but about enjoying how absolutely Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders is. He is the most Bernie Sanders of anyone in the world. His political convictions are clear, and the package it comes in is also clear. I was born and raised on the east coast, and Sanders reminds me of many folks I knew growing up. Whether you like Sanders or not, he is definitively Bernie Sanders.

Today, during the celebratory inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, Sanders set the internet alight by wearing a smart and sensible winter jacket, some powerful Vermont-made mittens, and keeping himself cozy and casual during what was clearly a very cold day in Washington, D.C. One image of Sanders, which depicts him with his arms and legs crossed while sitting quietly, went viral—and viral again, and again. Let’s enjoy the senator from Vermont on this hopeful day.

Sanders showed up and the internet took notice right away.

Bernie is your uncle who walks into your graduation dinner, hands you a check he just ripped out of his checkbook, no card, and asks the waiter where the nearest UPS Dropbox is because he needs to return something while he’s out. pic.twitter.com/Hpc8EWABCl

Then he sat down, and the glorious collective unconscious feeling that we are all Bernie Sanders took hold.

The pose. The mittens. The social distance. pic.twitter.com/kwHH7AzZY8
