They’re everywhere. It’s unreal. For anyone who is wondering who this bizarre old man in hand-knitted mittens is, it’s American politician Bernie Sanders. Who is now a viral meme thanks to his grumpy positioning in a camp chair at President Joe Biden’s inauguration in January. So we’ve collected our favourites, and have made a list of the strange memes of the man sitting in the chair.
1. Bernie as the King of Westeros

2. Even some stars are involved, with Paramore considering a rebrand of this album

3. Some people are just helping him spread his campaign – through street view

4. US Senator? Try King of the Pridelands
5. Who knew Forrest Gump was good friends with a US Senator? Not us.
6. He may look approachable – but don’t be fooled. You can’t sit with him.
7. Unless you’re dreamy Edward Cullen
8. Move aside Baby Yoda, Mittens are here to stay
9. But all joking aside, we love Bernie. We know he’ll be there for us, when the rain starts to fall
10. And to be honest, he’s just a whole mood – we’ve all had one of those meetings
