Well, Bernie Sanders unintentionally provided us with that with one picture of him sitting down. It was historic. But this isn't about politics.
As the inauguration ceremony unfolded early this morning (NZ time), the internet was set alight with amusing memes and witty commentary about the events as they happened. Bernie Sanders is an American politician, who was in the run for presidency nomination.
As the origin tale of the mittens began to seep out on Inauguration Day, that old Twitter account resurfaced. He's been through a few inaugurations. We know history is being made, yes, but what kind of history? So he came dressed for the weather. "And I'm totally honored that he wore them today".
A Sunday on La Grande Jatte—1884 with Sanders
In a sea of people fist-bumping and hugging, and wearing their best formals, the U.S. senator kept it real with mittens bearing a white and brown pattern. It didn't help matters that some organizations erroneously reported that she's now making more of them. From the moment he arrived, a beacon of sensible northeastern outerwear amid a sea of elegant wool coats, the internet fell in love with Sanders all over again.
He was pictured sitting on a chair, seemingly fairly glum and far away from people. Because of the increased volume in traffic, Sawhney said he stayed up all night improving the site's server and troubleshooting bugs to make sure it ran smoothly. And the memes just kept coming. During his brief run for president in 2020 he sported them during the campaign trial, and even wore them during interviews in Vermont.
