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.


Here’s how some of the Sanders memes stretched out across social media over the past 24 hours.
