We all woke up the day after inauguration with hilarious memes of Bernie Sanders in his mittens and coat. Our favorites were the DISNEY Memes that blasted the internet throughout the day. 

Bernie Sanders laughed about the memes on Late Night with Seth Myers yesterday. He explained while grinning- “I was Just sitting there, trying to keep warm, trying to pay attention to what was going on!”

Bernie Sander’s “Smittens” were created by Jen Ellis, a second-grade teacher from Essex Junction, Vt. She also had a partner who designed the pattern with her. On her Twitter she mentions, they are no longer for sale.

Ellis gave the Vermont senator  these brown, black and cream hand-knit smittens – part mittens, part sweater – on the campaign trail. They are made from repurposed wool sweaters and lined with fleece made from recycled plastic bottles. She had no idea he’d start wearing them at high-profile events. And definitely no clue it would turn into delightful memes that lets face it, we could all use right now.
Across social media this week, Sanders has been Photoshopped onto many images such as famous paintings, movie clip images, even the Golden Girls…which personally made me laugh out loud.

But the gems we have seen are the Disney memes!

Take a gander at some we’ve complied here!

Full disclosure: Jackie and I laughed about these memes in a Target parking lot yesterday for a straight 10 minutes.

We found all of these memes through social media and shared content, no images we claim as our own – Thank you Twitter and Facebook users!
