Bernie Sanders has taken his new meme status as a compliment and turned it into iconic merchandise for a good cause. The photo has seen the 79-year-old senator becomes a fashion icon and the meme has been flipped into a sweatshirt. As seen on the Bernie campaign store, the Chairman Sanders Crewneck is emblazoned with the now-ubiquitous photo of Sanders in mittens and a Burton jacket in a clever move of meme-based philanthropy. In an admirably on-brand move for Sanders, 100 per cent of proceeds will go toward Meals on Wheels Vermont. Ellis said Sanders wore them last winter while on the campaign trail seeking the Democratic presidential nomination.
