Bernie Sanders seems to know viral marketing pretty well. Either that or he gets really lucky with the tools he employs to make his points. The latest case comes with the Vermont senator bringing an oversized Trump tweet to the Senate floor. The tweet consists of a pre-nomination promise that President-Elect Trump wouldn’t cut certain social programs.
I was the first & only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid. Huckabee copied me.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 7, 2015
The internet stepped in, of course, to supply all manner of alternate-universe topics Bernie could have been discussing while using an oversized tweet. Honestly, this is a much-needed laugh for a pretty sour situation since as we speak the Senate is working to repeal Obamacare.
Let these sweet Bernie memes—including a really excellent Amber Rose cameo—guide you home.
