Photo of Bernie Sanders sitting at inauguration becomes internet meme

Published by Cyber Flows on

At President Joe Biden’s inauguration Wednesday, longtime Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders took a seat in a folding chair, crossed his legs and hands, and waited for the ceremonies to begin.

But there was something about his posture – or the fact he wasn’t sitting near anyone or maybe it was the slightly disgruntled look on his face – that just spoke to a lot of people on the internet.

Do you like Sanders’ gloves? They’re handmade by a Vermonter from repurposed wool sweaters – and they’re lined with fleece made from recycled plastic bottles. So on brand.

Like a thrifty New Englander, it appeared as though Sanders was wearing the same coat that appears in a very popular meme.

And of course, don’t forget the Photoshop jobs.
