KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Arguably no politician has unified the country more in the last few months than Sen. Bernie Sanders — or at least his meme has.
The Vermont senator’s photo of him sitting, sulking in his chair in his brown coat and decorative fuzzy mittens at the President Joe Biden inauguration on Wednesday took off and became a meme that took the internet by storm.
Now the 79-year-old politician and former presidential candidate, is making the most of the situation.
According to the website, the 100% combed-ring spun, organic cotton-fleece, unisex sweatshirt is made in the USA and union printed.
The cost is $45.
The best part: 100% of the proceeds go toward Meals on Wheels Vermont.
People on all sides of the United States’ political landscape and celebrities took to sharing the memes that were created.
The meme jumped up another level Friday as Instagram and Snapchat announce they have created Bernie meme image filters.
If you are getting a sweatshirt the Bernie website says you should allow 3-6 weeks for shipping due to high demand.
