“They controlled the House, the Senate and the White House, and they did not deliver for us,” said the executive director of CASA, a Maryland-based immigrant rights organization. “I hope that’s not going to be the case again, I hope we are going to pass immigration reform for 11 million (people) this time.”

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The photo of Bernie Sanders wearing his mittens and big puffy coat at the Inauguration is the gift that keeps on giving! Thanks to Sanders’ practical clothing choices on a cold Washington day, he is the center of an endless amount of memes.

In the now viral photo, Sanders is sitting in his chair at President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ Inauguration, all bundled up in his big coat and mittens. The altered photos/memes show the same thing, but instead, Sanders is sitting next to the Golden Knights’ Ryan Reaves, or he’s sitting next to the Golden Girls, or he’s placed in a casino, or a front yard, or he’s sitting on the iron throne from Game of Thrones. There are so many ways people are getting creative.
