Now you can put Bernie Sanders anywhere, thanks to NYU student’s website

Good News

(WSPA) – A New York University student has created a website, using Google Maps street view, where you can put an image of Bernie Sanders at any address.

The picture of Sanders sitting at Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday took social media by storm as he waited in his coat and now-iconic mittens.

Student Nick Sawhney tweeted about his new website and that he was trying his best to keep it from crashing.

Sanders’ appearance wearing his signature Burton coat and fuzzy mittens has its own heartwarming backstory.

The mittens were created by Vermont teacher Jane Ellis. Ellis made the mittens from repurposed wool sweaters and lined them with fleece from recycled plastic bottles.

The mittens have sold out for now, as has a sweatshirt created for Bernie Sanders’ website store titled the “Chairman Sanders Crewneck,” and described as “Vermont jacket, Vermont gloves, Vermont common sense.” All proceeds go to Meals on Wheels Vermont.
