Many great things happened since the inauguration, apart from the obvious (Kamala Harris and Joe Biden!), another great thing that came out of the ceremony was Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders who sparked a meme frenzy on social media with his dressed-down look to attend the inauguration. The 79-year-old senator created a viral meme and it was only soon after that stars joined in the viral meme challenge. 


For those who haven’t seen what Bernie was wearing, the senator was seen sporting a drab parka and woolly mittens. Now social media users placing the photo of Sanders in the audience in a variety of different places, from sitting on a park bench with Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump to joining Jean-Luc Picard and “Star Trek: The Next Generation” on the bridge of the Enterprise. 


Celebrities also joined in the meme-making fun, Friends alum Jennifer Aniston took to Instagram stories and showed off three hilarious shots of herself with Sanders, including a magazine cover and another with herself and the cast of Friends. Sarah Jessica Parker also joined in, and added Bernie in a still from Sex and the City, with all her co-stars except Kim Cattrall. Demi Moore was joined by Sanders in an iconic scene from “Ghost”. Ryan Reynolds also joined in and shared a picture of a Deadpool poster, with Bernie sitting beside him. 

Meanwhile, Sanders himself is even getting in on the action, and is now selling a line of meme-themed merchandise benefiting Meals on Wheels in his home state of Vermont. Sanders was then asked about his inauguration ensemble during an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, telling the host he had seen a lot of the memes. He insisted of the viral image, “I was just sitting there trying to keep warm, trying to pay attention to what was going on.”
