Why are Bernie Sanders’ Mittens trending?

BERNIE Sanders' cozy mittens and relaxed style at President Biden’s inauguration have sent social media into a spin.

The 79-year-old Vermont senator sat huddled in a winter coat and oversized woolly mittens as he attended the inaugural ceremony on Wednesday. 

Why are Bernie Sanders' Mittens trending? 

At Joe Biden’s inauguration ceremony on Wednesday, January 20, Senator Bernie Sanders wore brown zig-zag mittens and a large jacket to keep out the cold. 

Snaps of Sanders wrapped up in the comfy mittens prompted Vogue to publish a feature story on his Inauguration Day wardrobe.

The politician later commented about his mittens to CBS' Gayle King.

He told the news host: "In Vermont, we know something about the cold. And we’re not so concerned about good fashion. We want to keep warm."

Social media went wild for the Senator’s winter wardrobe. 

Jen Ellis tweeted: "I made Bernie’s mittens as a gift a couple years ago.

"They are made from repurposed wool sweaters and lined with fleece (made from recycled plastic bottles). #BerniesMittens"

In a followup tweet, Ellis thanked social media users for their interest in Bernie's mittens.

She said: "It truly has been an amazing and historic day! I'm so flattered that Bernie wore them to the inauguration.

"Sadly, I have no more mittens for sale. There are a lot of great crafters on ETSY who make them."

Why did Bernie Sanders' go viral at Joe Biden's inauguration?

Pictures of Sanders wrapped up at the ceremony have gone viral on Twitter with social media fans commenting on Bernie’s confident “grandpa” style. 

Sanders appeared to look cold and unamused as he sat outside in a folding chair.

One user wrote: "Bernie dressed like the inauguration is on his to do list today but ain’t his whole day."

Another user - who shared a photo of Sanders sitting on a folding chair with his legs and arms crossed - tweeted: "This could’ve been an email."

Another Twitter user shared a few hilarious memes of Sanders, with the memorable photo of him sitting, photoshopped into iconic moments in time.

Sanders was also pictured during The Last Supper, alongside Jesus and his apostles, on top of former VP Mike Pence's head - where a fly landed during a debate, and in the boxing ring during an iconic Muhammad Ali fight.

Other memes created of Sanders shows him sitting on the Iron Throne from Game of Thrones, on sand near the Egyptian pyramids, and alongside workers on a crossbeam during the construction of Rockefeller Center in New York City.

Sanders was also jokingly photoshopped the moon, wearing his now-famous mittens and an astronaut helmet.

Additional photos shared to Twitter show Sanders sitting and waiting on a bench in the Department of Motor Vehicles, outside of Ben and Jerry's factory in Vermont, next to fictional superhero Deadpool, in Disneyland, and inside an Apple store.
