In case you have been off of the internet for a week, there’s a meme trend of Bernie Sanders wearing mittens that have been going viral.
Bernie’s mittens were made by a woman named Jen Ellis. She gave the senator the mittens in 2016.
Now, she has pairs available on eBay. One pair going for $830!
I have heard your requests, and I am happy to tell you that I am making just a few more mittens today and tonight to be auctioned off for good causes. Tune in to MSNBC tomorrow morning at 7:45a.m. EST to find out where you can bid for a pair! pic.twitter.com/O6Vr7llDLz

The eBay auction page includes a message from Jen, saying, “One pair will be for my daughters [sic] college fund, one pair for Outright Vermont and this pair for a local dog rescue, Passion 4 Paws Vermont. All to be auctioned off for fundraisers. I am so flattered that people want my mittens and wish I could make them for everyone.”
Are you enjoying the Bernie Sanders memes? Which has been your favorite? Do you think it’s cool that Jen Ellis is selling mittens for charity?
