Bernie Sanders unbothered at Joe Biden’s inauguration. The 78-year-old Democrat sit down in a folding chair with his arms crossed and, obviously, socially distanced from everyone around him.
The shot quickly became a meme and is already one of January 2021’s most viral internet trends. Of course, even Rihanna fans had their fun with it and made several collages. They put Sanders on top of Britney Spears at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards performance or behind Rihanna on a Jetski.
Speaking to Seth Meyers, Sanders later revealed that he was „just sitting there, trying to keep warm, trying to pay attention to what is going on.“ He used the hype to promote the designer of his mittens. Check out some of our favotire Bernie Sanders x Rihanna memes here:
