The inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as US president and vice president was certainly a big event that met a lot of fanfare, but neither of them captured the imagination of the meme world as much as US Senator Bernie Sanders did. His outfit at the inauguration, composed of a winter jacket, a blue face mask, and a pair of huge mittens, caught the attention of the internet and birthed an endless supply of edits that put the senator in all kinds of places, fictional or otherwise.

If the Game of Thrones edit above meant to imply that Sanders has Stark blood in him, then the one below just took it a step further by placing him on the actual throne.

Bernie Sanders got invited to the wedding of Edward Cullen’s century, and everyone was too intimidated to tell him about the dress code; what about you?
In The Office

We understand why Sanders seemed a little grumpy if he had to witness the endless misadventures of the office of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company’s Scranton Branch.
Even The Office actress Angela Kinsey approves.
There’s a lot of these and they are all cracking me up. ❤️ @BernieSanders pic.twitter.com/W3Wm6wEMFD

Who’s been personally victimized by Regina George? Not Bernie, that’s for sure. Because no-one messes with Bernie. No. One.
Detention with The Breakfast Club gang
Gen X approves. 😄

Maybe he looked grumpy because he had to spend a whole Saturday babysitting and breaking up fights between the high school kids in The Breakfast Club. (Or maybe, it’s really just the four years of the 45th president in the White House.)
In South Korea with BTS

Apparently, Bernie Sanders got to hang out with Korean boy group BTS at a bus stop in South Korea. At least, according to the internet. Good thing Sanders was prepared with his winter jacket and cute mittens. The members of BTS look like they’re freezing their butts off.
Chilling with Deadpool

Who could say they got to chill on the edge of a rooftop with Deadpool himself? Just Bernie Sanders in his adorably huge mittens, of course.
He was there for the Yalta Conference
Best Bernie sighting today. pic.twitter.com/Mwo5vlTxH8

According to the internet, Bernie Sanders apparently has the power to travel through time to attend the Yalta Conference in 1945. (He was actually already alive then, but he was just four years old.)
Want to steal Bernie’s look for the cool weather? Make sure you’ve got a manila envelope to go with it. Just don’t expect the original mitten maker to give you one; she’s been flooded with emails since the photo of Bernie Sanders went viral.
