Bernie Sanders did not win the primaries when he ran for president of the United States for the Democratic Party in 2020, but he has won another award no less important: the best meme of 2021. And we are still in January.
Despite not being part of the government, Sanders became one of the protagonists in the inauguration of Joe Biden, the applauded new leader of the American nation who has been welcomed with open arms in Hollywood. A photo of him sitting with his eyes closed, his arms folded and his hands covered by warm gloves, went viral and became the pattern to introduce Sanders into all kinds of situations through Photoshop.
Bernie Sanders sneaks into the movies
The internet has worked its magic and Bernie Sanders has slipped into the most legendary audiovisual productions, from ‘The Big Lebowski’ to ‘Friends’, through ‘Forrest Gump’, ‘Ghost, beyond love’ or ‘This dead man is very alive’. The latter is especially funny because its original title is ‘Weekend at Bernie’s’.
Sometimes it has been the actors and filmmakers themselves who shared images from their own films with Sanders in them, as is the case with Jamie Lee Curtis and ‘Risky Lies’, Ian McKellen and ‘The Hobbit’ or Mark Hamill and ‘Star Wars’. Here we leave you the best cinematic memes that we have found of the American politician.

For too long the direwolf has suffered under the profit motives of the oligarchy. I’ll fight for everyone to have equal access to affordable direwolfs. #Direwolvesforall #Berniememes pic.twitter.com/hcXY6CXmpO

The politician has already spoken of the viral phenomenon and has launched a jerseys campaign with stamped image. All the money that is raised with the purchases will go to charity, so you can already feel a better person buying funny clothes.
