Sanders Turns Viral Meme Into Charity Sweatshirts

The Hill reports:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is cashing in on his viral mittens moment for a good cause — raising money for charity with a sweatshirt bearing his Inauguration Day look.

The Vermont senator’s campaign store unveiled a “Chairman Sanders crewneck” this week. The $45 organic cotton fleece shows the now-famous image of Sanders at President Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday.

The campaign store says 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of the unisex garment will be donated to Meals on Wheels Vermont. Sanders’s pose quickly became a viral sensation following the inauguration, and the focus of countless memes on social media.
