Bernie Sanders mittens meme ‘visits’ Brooklyn College in hilarious photoshop

Bernie Sanders and his viral mittens fit like a glove on the Brooklyn College campus!

The liberal Vermont senator’s first alma mater photoshopped the 79-year-old pol wearing his much-talked-about inauguration mittens into scenes around the school Thursday.

“Seems like honorand and alumnus @BernieSanders made a few more stops before the #Inauguration,” the school quipped on Twitter in a post with the photos.

The images feature the viral meme of Sanders bundled up grandpa-style at Joe Biden’s inauguration, doctored into photos of the college’s library, cafeteria and a grassy campus courtyard.

Sanders became the talk of social media for wearing a pair of simple, hand-knitted mittens and a no-frills parka while surrounded by lawmakers and celebrities dressed to the nines at the inauguration Wednesday. The hashtag #berniesandersmittens was still trending on Twitter on Friday.

He has told CBS that fashion wasn’t his first priority.

“In Vermont, we dress warm — we know something about the cold, and we’re not so concerned about good fashion. We want to keep warm, and that’s what I did today,” the pol told anchor Gayle King.
