Bernie Sanders has a lot on his mind. What to wear isn’t necessarily at the top of his agenda. He’s trying to get through the day without completely losing his mind over what other politicians are doing.
That’s why, even when he shows up at a big event like Joe Biden’s inauguration, he looks like he’s at an outdoor middle school talent show he was forced by his family to attend. That’s the Bernie way. He hasn’t enjoyed anything since the early 70s when he was writing folk songs in Vermont.
The good people of Twitter saw this grumbly man and had a lot to say.
Here are the funniest tweets about Bernie Sanders at Joe Biden’s inauguration:
1. Keepin’ it casual.
2. “These creatures are my family.”

Bernie’s got the green new deal in there.
He wanted to hand deliver it on day 1. https://t.co/oebVjbFA2v

27. And, closing with a sweet one…
Bernie’s mittens are made by Jen Ellis, a teacher from Essex Junction, Vt. She gave them to him 2+ years ago and was surprised when he began wearing them on the campaign trail. They are made from repurposed wool sweaters and lined with fleece made from recycled plastic bottles. pic.twitter.com/ErLr29lY2t
