Senator from Vermont Bernie Sanders became a hero of memes on social networks because of his appearance at the inauguration ceremony of the 46th President of the United States Joe Biden. Corresponding publications appeared on Twitter.
The American politician appeared at the event in clothes that did not correspond to the formal dress code. He was captured in the Burton brand park, which specializes in equipment for snowboarders. It is also known that the brand was founded in the state of Vermont, which Sanders has represented in the Senate since 2007.
The image of the 79-year-old politician was complemented by mittens, which were tied and presented to Sanders by teacher Jen Ellis. It is noted that the woman makes mittens using yarn from old sweaters and fleece made from recycled plastic bottles. She sells similar items on her Twitter account.
The appearance of the senator, sitting in a separate chair in a medical mask, amused netizens. Users began using Photoshop to add Sanders' image to screenshots of famous films, TV series, and music videos.
In addition, comic pictures of the politician along with other celebrities appeared on social networks, for example, singer Jennifer Lopez, rapper Cardi B, pop singer Britney Spears and characters from the TV series Sex and the City.
