Biden might have been sworn in as the president but Bernie stole the inauguration day

Inauguration day was definitely one to watch! If you’ve been on social media the last few days, you know exactly what we’re talking about.

Performances ranging from wonderful celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez, dresses different political leaders were wearing, the sneakers, Kamala Harris' outfit matching Lisa Simpson's, etc were talk of the town.

Senator and former challenger to presidency, Bernie Sanders, was probably the most comfortable senator in the entire inauguration with his extremely cozy outfit – perfect for the chilly weather of inauguration day.

Bernie was spotted wearing vermont mittens, a winter coat and...a manila folder. His inauguration look became an instant viral sensation. Photos of him were edited and published next to different celebrities and scenes from a variety of movies.

Even Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau jumped on the bandwagon.

The now super famous meme has been dubbed the “grumpy bernie sanders.” Sanders reacted to the viral meme by manufacturing a sweatshirt to raise money for charity.

A flurry of internet jokes and memes instantly filled up social media.

People hysterically joked that Bernie must have had some errands to run after the inauguration.

Or..it was freezing and he needed to stay warm.

According to Insider, AFP photographer Brendan Smialowski, who photographed the original image, stated that he did not think that the photo he took was anything special. He added that he happened to take the photograph by coincidence.

Nevertheless, this hilarious Bernie meme definitely added a bit of humour to an otherwise tense start to the year.

Although we definitely missed out on "Feeling the Bern" this time, Bernie stole people's hearts and spammed people's phone screens.

You do you Bernie!
