If there was one thing that conservatives and liberals can agree on about Inauguration Day it was that the *memes did not skip a beat.
The ceremony included beautiful performances from some of the music industry’s biggest stars including Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, and Garth Brooks. Even a beautiful speech by the youngest known poet laureate, Amanda Groman drew oohs and aahs from everyone watching. But, ultimately it was Bernie Sanders who stole the show. The internet went wild when the camera panned to the elderly senator sitting alone while wearing mittens and a simple coat with a grumpy look on his face. The image caught fire as thousands of memes were created and shared using Sander’s image in various settings and #BernieSanders hit the top ten trending hashtags on Twitter.
