Mitten Meme

Mitten Meme

Finn Woolf, Writer

After Bernie Sanders showed up at the Presidential Inauguration with big homemade mittens, the meme world exploded.

The memes show Sanders in famous places all over the world wearing his mittens. Some show him on the Eiffel Tower, some are in Japan, some are even in famous places on shows.

Bernie says the the mittens where made by a second grade teacher in Essex Junction. Many people saw these mittens and wanted a pair of there own, so they emailed the teacher and asked for a pair.

“The mittens are not for sale” She said after the storm of emails.

“I was just sitting there trying to keep warm, trying to pay attention to what was going on.” Sanders said on the Late Night Show with Seth Meyers.

Though the meme was about him Sanders quickly changed the subject to the lady who made them, saying “What was really nice is the woman who made the mittens lives in Essex Junction, Vermont, she is a schoolteacher and a very, very nice person. She has been somewhat overwhelmed by the kind of attention that is being shown to her mittens.”
