"I love all these memes of Bernie cuz they all are about how he’s just a kind old Jewish grandpa who does his job," added user @EmmaWallie.
"I am honestly so obsessed with the Bernie memes because my dad is right on the verge of having that exact same grumpy jewish grandpa energy, including the big comfy mittens," quipped @duskrey.
Girl, same. When I look at Bernie, bundled-up and ready to complete the next task on his busy agenda, it's almost like looking at an image of my own dad, who is notably not grumpy, as he pointed out upon reading this. Over the course of my life, I've seen my father begrudgingly attend semi-formal events, like weddings, funerals, and holiday gatherings decked out in a crew neck sweatshirt, a stack of mail he picked up en-route to the function du jour perhaps not in hand, but sitting on the front seat of his car, an always amusing and quintessentially Howard move. And apparent from the influx of stories like these from Americans everywhere, I know I'm not alone. In a year defined by distance from family in the midst of a pandemic, the introduction of a wholesome meme that reminds many people, myself included, of their loved ones is a welcome rarity, and a great way to to kick off this new administration.
