Bernie Sanders is blowing up the Internet

Now that we can all collectively unclench, let us enjoy Bernie (once again) blowing up the Internet. We've all seen the photo that has launched a thousand memes: Bernie sitting socially distanced, the off-center mask, the Vermont-y knit mittens, the salty countenance. 

Artist Tobey King perfectly captures this moment with her Bernie Crochet Doll, which is also blowing up the Internet (update: the Bernie doll raised more than $40K for Meals on Wheels America!).

When a reporter asked about his Inauguration fashion, you know what Bernie said? "Fashion? Every American needs their $2,000 check!"
