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.
The photo shows Sanders bundled up in a folding chair with his arms crossed while wearing a face mask.
Sanders attended Brooklyn College for one year between 1959 and 1960 before transferring to the University of Chicago.
In 2017, the Midwood school gave him an honorary degree, calling him “a leading voice in the Senate on income inequality, immigrants’ rights [and] global warming.”
