Bernie Sanders Talks About Becoming Viral Meme at Biden’s Inauguration

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) became a meme after a photo of him bundled up at President Joe Biden’s inauguration went viral.

Appearing on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” host Seth Meyers asked Sanders about the moment of the senator with his winter coat and mittens at the inauguration that was turned into a meme.

Meyers asked Sanders if he knew immediately about becoming a viral hit, the senator said, “Not at all.”

Sanders added, “I was just sitting there trying to keep warm, trying to pay attention to what was going on.”

Watch his interview below:

Sanders later added, “What’s really nice is the woman who made the mittens, who lives in Essex Junction, Vermont, she is a school teacher and a very, very nice person. And she’s been somewhat overwhelmed by the kind of attention that is being shown to her mittens.”

Late-night television talk show host James Corden also took a poke at the viral photo of Sanders during his show, where there were cardboard cut-outs of Sanders.

“Speaking of break out stars of the inauguration, we have another one with us,” Corden said.

Sanders’ team also created a “Chairman Sanders Crewneck” sweater with the image of the senator at the inauguration with his crossed legs.

“Vermont jacket, Vermont gloves, Vermont common sense,” the description of the sweater reads.

Additionally, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum is creating a bobblehead of Sanders.

Biden was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts on Wednesday, and Vice President Kamala Harris was sworn in by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.


  1. just one more fine example of the dem party…. nothing more to say about this picture…

  2. Bernie Sanders is an idealistic moron who is bent on socialism. Don’t tell me he lives like a pauper. His net worth is 3 million so he can afford to act like money does not matter. He has enough money to not have to worry like the rest of us……..πŸ™„

    1. To think that he will be heading up the Senate Budget Committee is something to worry about. Big Time!

  3. So he lives up to the Crazy Old Man tag he’s been struck with for years.

    No one even wanted to sit near him.

    Anyone go over and check his pulse every so often?
