Bernie Sanders has once again become an internet meme after a photograph of him at the Inauguration Ceremony went viral.
In the photograph, Bernie can be seen sitting alone in fold out chair with his arms crossed, while wearing the same coat from the “I am once again asking” meme.
Fans have also been discussing Bernie’s knitted mittens, which have a surprisingly sweet story behind them.
Bernie Sanders goes viral for Inauguration Day photograph
Bernie Sanders has become a topic of conversation on Twitter after a photograph of him at the Inauguration Ceremony went viral.
In the photo, Bernie can be seen sitting in a chair, socially distanced from others, with his arms folded across his chest. Fans have been going mad for his outfit, which consists of a winter coat, and mittens- a far cry from the sharp tailored suits worn by other attendees.
Bernie’s mittens are made from repurposed sweaters and recycled plastic by Jen Ellis, a second grade teacher who lives in Essex Junction, Vermont.
You may also recognise the coat he is wearing, as it is the same he wore in the video which made him into a viral meme last year.
Speaking about his outfit, Bernie Sanders told CBS News in an interview after the ceremony: “In Vermont, we dress warm – we know something about the cold. We’re not so concerned about good fashion. We want to keep warm. And that’s what I did today.”

Bernie Sanders became a meme back in January 2020 after people began editing a screenshot of him from a video during his campaign trail.
Now, people have been editing the picture of Bernie sitting on the chair during Inauguration Day into various settings, including historical events and funny backgrounds such as the beach.
