You’ve seen the memes. Don’t act like you haven’t.
Well, now Bernie Sanders has seen ’em too — for the first time, or so he says. When Seth Meyers asked him if he was aware of his instant meme-ification on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Sanders replied, “Not at all.”
“I was just sitting there, trying to keep warm, trying to pay attention to what was going on.”
But when Meyers showed Sanders a meme of him sitting with the characters from Sex and the City, he laughed and admitted: “I’ve seen ’em.”
Sanders also shouted out Jen Ellis, the Vermont-based teacher and supporter who gave him the iconic mittens over two years ago.
“She is a schoolteacher and a very, very nice person, and is somewhat overwhelmed by the kind of attention that’s being shown to her.”
As for what was in that envelope? “I’d love to tell you, Seth, but it’s top secret,” Sanders claimed.
