Bernie Sanders went viral on Wednesday, January 20th, during the inauguration of Joe Biden as the 46th president of the United States. Millions of people have forgotten the event and the presidential speech to generate memes on the US political figure.

The former presidential candidate and Senator Sanders walked inside the Capitol Hill to attend the Biden’s inauguration ceremony wearing informal clothes and colorful mittens as he sat on the bleachers quietly, social media users took the chance to move him between trains, space, and movie clips.

Sanders’ mittens were a gift from a Vermont teacher, and they are actually made partly from recycled plastic bottles.

Bernie Sanders had competed with Joe Biden to win the Democratic seat for the 2020 US presidential elections, but withdrew right before finishing in second place.

He also lost in his battle to get the Democratic Party nomination for president of the United States in 2016 against Hillary Clinton. Before his election to Congress, he served as mayor of Burlington, Vermont.

Sanders was born into a working-class Jewish family and raised in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. He attended Brooklyn College before graduating from the University of Chicago in 1964.
