Sports fans made some of the best Bernie Sanders memes from inauguration day.
Bernie Sanders provided one of the most memorable moments of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ inauguration simply by sitting down. As former presidents and entertainers surrounded the U.S. Capitol decked out in high fashion, the Vermont Senator pulled up a chair in the back of the inauguration wearing the same coat from his other famous meme with mittens made out of recycled materials. Sanders looked a little bored and disinterested at the pageantry of the moment, which tracks for a politician who has spent his entire life fighting for working class people.
The image of Sanders quickly turned into a meme that spread like wildfire across the internet. There was Sanders on the New York subway and Sanders at the merch table of a rock show. Of course there were sports memes, too. We wanted to share a few of our favorites.
After the Cleveland Cavaliers pulled a stunning double overtime upset over the Brooklyn Nets in the debut of James Harden with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, Cavs center Andre Drummind went back to the locker room and immediately tweeted a Bernie meme. It was perfect:
