Wow, so that first video link I sent was taken down. I contacted the guy who made it... apparently it pissed off the 4 chan peeps so much they somehow hacked/got whoever first posted his videos accounts suspended, and doxxed those people. He took it down off youtube and twitter becuase he doesn't want them to come after him.

Insane.

Does anyone remember when Tony Snow was W’s press secretary, and in response to the press corps asking if W reads, Snow replied he had just had a deep discussion with him about Camus?

The internet is having a great deal of fun with Bernie being sensibly dressed for chilly weather.

Anyone know why the Bernie-Gloves stuff took off?

I would have voted for him. But ... clothing? He wore sensible cold-weather gear to an important event. I wouldn't have given it any thought.

That’s a good question.

My best guess is it drives home Sanders is a lot less “fake” than most politicians. He’s willing to sacrifice gravitas for practicality and making one rando supporter’s day. His body language is also amusing.

Dude should wear a hat, though.

It's the posture and the fact that he obviously doesn't give a **** about "representation" if the clothing he already has is clean, intact, and perfectly functional.

ZERO vanity. Just substance. Added to the fact that the mittens were a gift from a voter, and they're Good Mittens, so of course he wears them.

It just encapsulates him so perfectly. <3

(And turning the unexpected hype at his expense into a charity fundraiser is an absolute class move.)

Another thing I forgot to add.

The majority of the nation was (and still is) looking for a “palate cleanser”.

I’d say also now that Trump is gone, many people long for cheap pop corn memes. Trump’s grip on the public (in the sense of how much the public followed the minutiae of politics) has exhausted most people. A meme about Sanders with handknitted gloves gifted to him by a constituent fits the bill IMHO. And as memes go, this one is good-natured, as you said, it highlights that he is genuine and I’d add down-to-earth and kind. It is crazy the degree to which this meme has taken off. In the Japanese expat Twittersphere I’ve seen memes where a hand-drawn version of Sanders is put into screen caps of the anime movie Totoro and Sanders on the Tokyo subway.
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

Sadly, closer to the truth than not.
