I bet he was very warmly dressed, too. People forget that Washington, D.C. is a seaport town. It doesn’t just get cold; it gets damp and wet from the humidity. Take it from one who knows: dealing with that climate can be pure torture if you aren’t dressed correctly. Plus, one can get very, very sick, CV crud notwithstanding.

Ms. Benny, now that orange maggoty tRump is a private citizen, guess now we watch NY. Will the SDNY unlease the legal Kracken of criminal charges against the cretin that he so richly deserves?🗽♎️

You too can have mittens just like Bernie’s

https://stylecaster.com/bernie-sanders-inauguration-mittens/#slide-1

Let me just start this off by saying, whew! What a day. Trump is OUT, Biden has been sworn in as our new President, Kamala Harris just became the first woman–not to mention the first Black woman and the first Asian American to hold the Vice Presidential office–and I can’t stop crying. One thing that has abated my tears? Getting a glimpse of Bernie Sanders’ mittens, the most spectacular pair I’ve ever seen.

We’ve been fawning over Dr. Biden’s sparkly blue Markarian dress and coat, VP Kamala Harris’ Christopher John Rogers ensemble, Michelle Obama’s glam suit, Lady Gaga’s Hunger Games-esque Schiaparelli gown & J. Lo’s all-white Chanel suit, but I’m here to say the true star of this show was Bernie Sanders’ practical parka and toasty-looking fair isle mittens.

Senator Sanders was spotted in the crowd looking every bit the Vermont native he is. The freezing temps at Biden’s Inauguration weren’t going to stop him from enjoying the historic day. Although he probably could have picked out a warmer coat for the occasion, his mittens were extremely appropriate for the slightly snowy weather. Democracy has prevailed today, alongside our respect for Sanders and his very practical sartorial choices.

So let’s talk about those mittens. They’re lined with fleece made from recycled plastic bottles and hand-knit using repurposed wool sweaters. Warm, eco-friendly and just stylish enough to be covetable. Just like Bernie?

“Bernie’s mittens are made by Jen Ellis, a teacher from Essex Junction, Vt,” tweeted BuzzFeed News political reporter Ruby Cramer. “She gave them to him 2+ years ago and was surprised when he began wearing them on the campaign trail.” You won’t be able to get your hands on Bernie’s exact pair, we’ve found a few that come pretty close.

We’re always in the market for a good pair of mittens, or any cold-weather accessory really. You can never be too prepared when temps drop below 40 degrees! Below, some of our favorite eco-friendly mittens that look just like Bernie’s and are sure to keep you warm this winter. Let’s just say, we’re feeling the brrrrrn today.

Please don’t tell me about all the structural imbalances and barriers, GOP intransigence, the courts, etc. I’m well aware of all that. Still, when you control all three of these, you can get a lot done, if you have the political will and strength. Just ask Trump and McConnell.

I couldn’t resist. What a brilliant, heartfelt performance. The Anthem is very difficult to sing according to professional singers. The singer has to be born with the ability and physical power similar to an opera singer. Lady Gaga delivers. Where’s my hanky? 🙂

P.S.: I was just knocked out by her gold pin, too, the white bird of peace.

‘where are they now’ Bernie trivia:

The young ladies who sang the anthem for Sanders’ Tucson rally in 2016 are still doing their thing
