Bernie Sanders Mittens Bobblehead, Stickers and Other Merch You Can Buy

President Joe Biden was inaugurated yesterday, but another former presidential candidate got the internet talking: Bernie Sanders. The Vermont senator had everyone talking about his outfit, specifically his mittens.

The image of Sanders wearing his mittens at the inauguration quickly went viral, and the Bernie Sanders mittens meme was born as Twitter users photoshopped Sanders sitting in various locations, from Lady Gaga's album cover to the set of Breaking Bad.

Someone even made a website that allows users to insert Sanders anywhere in the world using Google Maps.

Sanders wore mittens made for him by second-grade school teacher Jen Ellis of Essex Junction, Vermont. Sanders' daughter-in-law, Liza Driscoll, runs Ellis' daughter's daycare. Ellis made mittens for the daycare's teachers and gave an extra pair to Sanders, more than two years ago.

When Gayle King asked Sanders about his mittens, Sanders said: "In Vermont we dress warm, we know something about the cold. And we're not so concerned about good fashion. We want to keep warm. And that's what I did today."

While Bernie fans may be disappointed that his mittens are not for sale, they should know that they can get the next best thing: Bernie Sanders mittens merch.
