I feel sorry for Bernie. People around the world are making fun of him. He was just trying to keep warm. Am I alone in this?

I don't think people are making fun of him at all. I think it's a perfect representation of how down to earth he is.

And his website is selling sweatshirts with the image (with proceeds going to charity) so I would assume he's okay with it.

I think he has a great sense of humor and he gets it.

I'm guessing he was focused more on keeping warm. He also may have thought that the camera and the people watching would not have their eyes on him during the ceremony.

I'm also guessing that he doesn't care what others think! I've heard that the older we get, the less we care about what others think.

As others have mentioned, if you ever lived the the New England area, you really consider dressing for warmth. His coat and mittens remind me of some of my past bundling up outfits for recess duty!!

I sort of felt sorry for him until it seems that he could care less. If I'm right, I thought I heard he was selling sweatshirts with that picture of him on the front, giving the money to some cause.

I donít think anyone is making fun of him. IMHO itís a way of showing how much he is liked. And that he paves his own way.

As a former Vermonter I donít think anyone is making fun of him or that he is upset. My family that likes Bernie has been sending each other memes. Itís fun! It makes me nostalgic.

I saw him being interviewed and he just chuckled about it. He said now everyone knows Vermonters have great mittens. Heís been in politics for decades and has been the subject of many memes/teasing over the years. I really donít think he cares.

I have seen a bunch of these and none are mean spirited. It's just a laugh and people are so creative. Did you see the Holderness family did a song? It makes me laugh so much, so clever

I am birdie and I love the memes. Itís a great representation of who he is and why many love him. Down to earth, wearing gloves a teacher made him, and knows that business still needs to be taken care of.

Bernie was interviewed by Seth Meyers last night. He was chuckling and seemed to be enjoying the memes that Seth was showing him.

I saw him interviewed about the memes. He chuckled and said he was aware of them. He didn't seem upset at all. Bernie has a huge following of supporters who love him. I think he sees the memes as light-hearted. I think they are the levity that we all need given the tension we have all come through over the past few months.

I have not seen any that were mean spirited. They strike me as a take on Flat Stanley.

A very wise friend once told me you don't tease (in a humorous sort of way) people you don't love! I think that makes total sense!

I don't think these memes are at all mean-spirited. Just fun.

If a politician doesn't have a sense of humor, they must be continually hurting.

If Bernie cared what people thought of his sartorial choices, heíd have changed them a long time ago:

Plus, heís selling the chair photo on a sweatshirt on his website. All the proceeds go to Vermont Meals on Wheels. I think heís fine with it.

I also donít think most people are making fun of him. I think weíre relating to him. Itís laughing with him rather than at him.

And at least among the people I know, even those who donít like his ideas respect his character. I donít think the memes are mean-spirited the way a lot of Biden and Trump memes have been recently.

I didn't think people were making fun of him either. I saw the Seth Meyers interview as well. He seemed very pleased that the teacher who made the mittens for him was getting a lot of positive attention.

I remember way back when, in 2016 when he announced his first presidential run. I didn't used to follow politics closely and I had no idea who he was, but I remember telling my mom, "Don't you think you'd brush your hair prior to getting up on the podium to announce your presidential candidacy?" As we've all learned, that's just who he is!

There are some harsh responses on Twitter regarding Bernie's wardrobe for the inauguration. But Bernie "really doesn't give a f&ck" as Jackie would say He appreciates that people would make fun. The guy has a sense of humor and knows how to stay warm!

The teacher who made the mittens lives in my hometown! My hs friend knows her. Bernie thinks the memes are hilarious. We Vermonters not only know how to stay warm, we know how to laugh at ourselves!

I bet Tom Hanks was wishing for that coat and those mittens when he hosted the evening festivities. Poor man looked cold. At least Bernie has the good sense to dress appropriately for the weather. To heck with fashion.

Obviously he made the "Best Dressed" list!


You know he has a great sense of humour. He's joined Larry David on SNL, at least once. Later Larry David was on "Finding Your Roots". They actually are related!

I hope we don't have to wait for the book as long as we have to wait for Amanda Gorman's book of children's poems, "Change Sings." Her books, including "The Hill We Climb and Other Poems" won't be released until September 21.

You know someone WILL write a book with the title, "Bernie's Mittens". It's too good an idea not to. Amanda's are already best sellers!

I think no one is laughing at Bernie. He was smart and probably one of the only people who dressed for the day.

Bernie even visited Frank the Christmas Gargoyle.....

with the image. The money that is raised goes to Meals on Wheels in Vermont. I think he is having fun with it too. He was on CNN this morning and expects to be able to raise quite a bit to Meals on Wheels.
