While other guests were dressed in their best formal clothes, United States Senator Bernie Sanders wore a parka and colourful mittens to President Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday. A photograph of Sanders, sitting with his arms crossed, soon became a meme template and inspired thousands of jokes on social media.
Addressing the viral trend, Sanders told a journalist on TV, “In Vermont, we know something about the cold. We are not so concerned about good fashion, we want to keep warm.”
Here are a few popular memes on the senator’s attire from Wednesday.
