On inauguration day, 2021, the internet was taken hold by viral content not seen in years. An image of Sen. Bernie Sanders, arms and legs crossed, mask-wearing, and wearing warm Vermont-made mittens, watching the inaugural proceedings, took off. Memes were created using Sen. Sanders.

A story written by me was placed here and enjoyed. Normally, these things have a life of about 12-24 hours, but when America awoke this morning, they were unwilling to give up the joy of Bernie and his mittens. Maybe it is because the collective sigh let out by humanity as America’s 46th president takes office, is a long and relaxing one. Get ready to enjoy another Bernie meme ride.
