Bernie Sanders takes a seat in Eagle County, thanks to viral memes
With all of the news coverage of President Joe Biden’s and Vice President Kamala Harris’ inauguration on Wednesday, who would have thought the most viral image of the day would be Senator Bernie Sanders sitting in a foldout chair, legs crossed, arms crossed, mittens on and mask on.
The internet remains undefeated, with memes and images popping up of Sanders photoshopped sitting other places.
“I was just sitting there, trying to keep warm, trying to pay attention to what was going on,” Sanders told late-night TV host Seth Meyers.
Eagle County residents and businesses also got in on the fun.
