KNOXVILLE, Tennessee (WATE) – Arguably no politician has united the country more in recent months than Senator Bernie Sanders – or at least his meme.
The Vermont senator’s photo of him sitting pouting in his chair in his brown coat and fluffy decorative mittens during President Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday took off and became a meme that took the internet by storm.
Today, the 79-year-old politician and former presidential candidate is taking advantage of the situation.
His campaign website began featuring sweatshirts of the Senator’s new claim to fame on Friday.
According to the website, the unisex ring-combed 100% organic cotton fleece sweatshirt is made in the USA and union printed.
The cost is $ 45.
The best part: 100% of the proceeds go to Meals on Wheels Vermont.
People from all sides of the political landscape of the United States and celebrities began to share the memes that were created.
The meme hit a new level on Friday as Instagram and Snapchat announce they’ve created Bernie meme image filters.
If you are purchasing a sweatshirt, Bernie’s website says you should allow 3-6 weeks for shipping due to high demand.
