Bernie Sanders

Airports and airlines embrace the Bernie Sanders mittens meme

Airports and airlines jumped on the #BernieMittens meme along with the rest of the world after he was spotted bundled up at the presidential inauguration.

Here’s a sampling.

If we missed Bernie Sanders and his mittens at your airport or on your airplane, please send a link and we’ll add it to the list. The world is already moving on from this meme, but history will want to know.

Federal Face Mask Mandate applies to airplanes

One of the executive orders President Joe Biden signed on his first day in office is a 100-day mask mandate. The rule applies to all federal property, including national parks, airlines, trains, and transit systems that travel between states.

Many travelers and parts of the travel industry are applauding the move. And it looks like we’ll have the new Bernie Sanders-bundled-up-at-the inauguration meme to help us remember to stick with the program.

There’s even an app that will help you put the masked-up Sanders at your favorite airport – or anywhere Google has mapped.

Here here is at Chicago O’Hare and Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
