Bernie Sanders' mittens inspired these hilarious memes — and a bobblehead

Sen. Bernie Sanders knows how to dress for cold weather, and the world of social media instantly fell in love.

The focus may have been on President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, who were officially sworn in on Wednesday at the U.S. Capitol, but Sanders' mittens might have stolen some of their thunder.

Instead of wearing a formal suit, the Vermont senator went with a more casual look, wearing a buttoned-up Burton coat and knit gloves that, according to Ruby Cramer of Buzzfeed News, were made by a teacher in Biden's home state of Vermont.

Sanders' look went viral on social media, and from Twitter to Instagram, there was no shortage of hilarious reactions and memes spawned from his moment in the spotlight.

And there's already a bobblehead in the works, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, which is part of the USA TODAY Network.

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum in Milwaukee announced it would create a bobblehead replica of a viral image of Sanders sitting at the inauguration, cold and somewhat unamused.
