The Most Hilarious Memes Featuring Bernie Sanders and His Famous Mittens
#BerniesMittens are the real winners of the 2021 inauguration.
(SPOT.ph) There's a lot that went down during the inauguration of Joe Biden as the 46th U.S. president on January 20, 2021. It was historic, vindicating (depending on where you stand), and more (or less) importantly, the time for absolutely killer 'fits. There was Vice President Kamala Harris and FLOTUS Jill Biden in cool-toned coats, former First Lady Michelle Obama coming to slay in a sleek, burgundy powersuit—and that cinch—yet somehow, all eyes are on Vermont senator Bernie Sanders' incredibly understated, elderly-grandfather-running-an-errand get-up. And TBH, this moment needs to be discussed.
What are these Bernie Sanders mittens?
Power suits are all about subversion—and Sanders' outfit is about as subversive as you can get, in the wholesome kind of way. In a sea of powerful people dressed accordingly, Sanders' chose to pair his black suit with a jacket and, the real star of the show, those mittens. The jacket, BTW, looks to be from Vermont-based brand Burton and might just be the same one he wore for the memed-like-crazy "I am once again asking" clip. But we need to focus on those cozy looking mittens!
"I made Bernie’s mittens as a gift a couple years ago," tweeted Vermont teacher Jen Ellis, who must have had quite a shock when she saw Sanders sporting the pair during the historic inauguration. Best part? The pair was sustainably made! And yup, you can reach out to her to buy a few, in case you want to.
Sanders and his mittens have taken Twitterverse by storm, giving birth to a brand new inauguration meme people can't get enough of. We know the new POTUS is really what it's all about, but we're rounding up the best of #BerniesMittens—from crazy Photoshop jobs to hilarious captions—because we all deserve something good.
Imagine upstaging two global supertars thanks to mittens.
He's got places to be.
"Keep it snappy, Joe," he said, maybe.
Just popping over during his lunch break.
So it begins.
Are these actual pictures or just photoshop? We honestly can't tell.

He's got a long list of errands to run.
An even bigger plot twist?
Ah yes, we remember this scene. Sanders was perfect in it!
I presume this was done... But I figure I'd add mine. pic.twitter.com/xmvaEHWSck— Julius Cheng, MD MPH (@ChengJD_MD) January 21, 2021
He was in all the shows and movies.
Even Sanders has to listen to Regina George.
This works almost too well.
Meanwhile, in an alternate universe.
