Senator Bernie Sander's fashion choice for Biden's inauguration as the 46th President of the United States of America has become the talk of the town.
While everyone in the ceremony, including Harris and Biden, brought their A-game in fashion, the 79-year-old senator donned a 'grandpa in the post office' look.
Wearing a pair of brown mittens, Bernie made a lot of netizens smile at his sheer simplicity.
"I see everyone mocking Bernie’s “grandpa at the post office” vibe today, but those mittens are clutch,” said one Twitter user.
Senior reporter Ruby Cramer then pointed out, “Bernie’s mittens are made by Jen Ellis, a teacher from Essex Junction, Vt. She gave them to him 2+ years ago and was surprised when he began wearing them on the campaign trail. They are made from repurposed wool sweaters and lined with fleece made from recycled plastic bottles.”
Bernie is a proud owner of these mittens for a while now. Jen Ellis gave these to the senator as a gesture of acknowledgment towards his work for the nation.
“I just put in a little note that was like, ‘I believe in you, I’ve always believed in you, and I hope you run again,'” Ellis said, per Seven Days. “And now he is running again, and he apparently is wearing the mittens that I made for him!” she said when Bernie placed his nomination as the President representing the Democratic party.
“You have eyes on the community when you’re a schoolteacher, and you really can see what happens when families don’t have access to adequate health care, don’t have access to basic human rights and needs,” she said. “And so I feel like Bernie is speaking to everyone who interacts with humanity,” Ellis concluded.
