Joe Biden's inauguration was not without funny things. The attention of the whole world has attracted … no, not the newly elected President of the United States, but Bernie Sanders. The name of this politician was hitherto unknown to the general public. The elderly senator made a splash on the Internet with his photo in cute knitted mittens and a disposable mask. In just a day, the network was flooded with hundreds of funny memes with a politician. The best of them are further in the review.
Bernard "Bernie" Sanders was born in Brooklyn, New York, to a family of Jewish immigrants from Poland. When he graduated from university, he moved to Vermont. There he managed to work as a journalist and even a carpenter. Sanders got into politics in the seventies of the 20th century, when he joined the Freedom Union party.
The politician has repeatedly nominated himself not only for the post of governor of his state, but also for the post of President of the United States. In the last election, he was a potential opponent of the defeated Donald Trump.
Bernie Sanders became famous on the web, thanks to his very cute and cozy look. The 79-year-old senator attended Joe Biden's inauguration. The event took place in Washington on January 20. Sanders stood out sharply from the crowd of ceremonially dressed guests. He was dressed completely casual. Bernie was wearing a regular warm jacket and cute knitted mittens. The American politician sat on a folding chair apart from everyone else. The Senator of Vermont watched the proceedings with undisguised skepticism.
The photo of Sanders sitting alone on a chair, where he crossed his arms, crossed his legs, greatly amused netizens. In a matter of hours, the meme became just a cult. Wherever they placed a photo of phlegmatic Bernie: famous TV shows, films, historical photographs.
Hundreds of memes with Sanders ignoring formal dress code have flooded the internet. Many joked about the fact that Biden must be incredibly sad, because an elderly senator stole all the attention from the newly-made president.
The inauguration ceremony of the forty-sixth president of the United States due to the coronavirus pandemic was very modest. There were few people. In the National Mall, which is in front of the Congress building, instead of the usual gathering of the public, two hundred thousand small US flags were placed. Together with Biden, Kamala Harris took the oath. This is the first woman in the history of the country who managed to take the post of vice president. Following the oath, President Joe Biden delivered a speech.
A funny cute photo of Sanders in knitted woolen mittens has become a mega-popular meme. The politician decided with his help to raise funds for charity. T-shirts, postcards, stickers, sweaters with a photo of the senator were released. There were so many orders that Sanders has already collected almost two million dollars! And people keep ordering. The left senator plans to give all the proceeds to those in need.
The legendary mittens were knitted by a Vermont teacher named Jen Ellis. The woman was simply bombarded with orders. In an interview with the press, Jen said that she had not knitted for a long time, and therefore was in no hurry to sit down for the execution. The frenzied popularity of the meme forced her to tie several pairs. Ellis sells them at auctions. The woman donated all the proceeds from the sale of the first mittens to the Vermont LGBT youth organization. She wants to donate the money for the second pair to a local dog rescue organization. Jen will spend the proceeds from the third on college for her daughter.
On social networks, users continue to scoff at the senator's snapshot. He has already managed to be a member of the Avengers team and join the heroes of the fantasy saga "The Lord of the Rings".

Thanks to Comrade Brezhnev: Cult Soviet films that reached the audience thanks to the Secretary General
In Soviet times, officials from cinema always tried to play it safe and often, just in case, did not allow one or another film to be shown, so as not to incur the wrath of high authorities. However, the bosses often turned out to be much more far-sighted and more liberal than their subordinates. So, many films that have gained immense popularity were released on screens only thanks to personally the General Secretary of the CPSU Leonid Ilyich Brezhnev

Secondly, looking at other works of art, it becomes clear that the guys knew how to have fun and had not only religious convictions, but also a sense of humor.
