Bernie Sanders has gifted us with the first meme of Joe Biden's presidency.

At yesterday's national shindig, Sanders stood out among expensive wool coats in his favorite Burton parka and handmade mittens. Trying to keep warm and social distance, he sat alone with his arms crossed—his mittens standing out more than ever. It was a mood.

It didn't take the internet long to photoshop their favorite Brooklynite into classic New York City scenes and situations. 

Here are some of our favorites:
