Bernie: On Broadway
Senator Bernie Sanders, whose side gig as a Twitter icon almost overshadows his anti-establishment political career, showed up to President Biden’s inauguration and set meme-inclined imaginations ablaze. With his cozy mittens and, “Whenever you’re ready…” crossed legs, the Vermont politician must have reminded theatre lovers of the agonies and ecstasies of waiting for a Broadway performance to start. In a matter of minutes, memes featuring Sanders as being part of everyone’s favorite musicals were racking up retweets. So here, at last, is Bernie: On Broadway.
