It was a historic day for the US on Wednesday. Amid everything that took place during President Joe Biden’s inauguration, Bernie Sanders unwittingly stole the spotlight after being turned into a meme.

The Vermont senator got the meme treatment on Wednesday as images circulated across social media of a cross-legged Sanders sitting in a physically distanced chair in mittens and a face mask during Biden’s ceremony.

The #berniesmittens meme stopped off in Montreal as the STM (Société de transport de Montréal) posted a version of the internet joke.

Captioned “when you take the metro and know it’ll be -20 when you get out,” in French, the STM added the Bernie meme to its Instagram stories.
