Celebs share funny Bernie Sanders memes after inauguration photo goes viral


There were many memorable moments from Joe Biden and Kamala Harris's inaugurations as U.S. president and vice president, including the Celebrating America primetime special, reunions with former presidents and Amanda Gorman wowing with her poem. One of the things that took social media by storm was BernieSanders's cozy look at the swearing-in ceremony.

The Vermont senator bundled up to protect himself from the chilly winter weather outside on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. He was spotted wearing a pair of brown-and-cream mittens and a coordinating Burton ski jacket. The mittens, which were made by a Vermont teacher, quickly started trending. So did memes of the 79-year-old senator crossing his arms. People couldn't resist Photoshopping him into images of their own and pop culture moments related to everything from Friends to RuPaul's Drag Race.
