Jason Momoa Gif 'Wins' Bernie Sanders Meme Contest, Fans Say

Jason Momoa Gif 'Wins' Bernie Sanders Meme Contest, Fans Say

A Jason Momoa meme of Bernie Sanders has been hailed 'the best' by fans.

By now you will be well aware of the infinite number of memes doing the rounds on social media, centred on the US Senator.

But while many impressive examples have been seen, some believe that a gif created of the Game of Thrones star could be the best yet.

In the short video, the actor can be seen carrying a fold-up chair, which he then flips out to reveal Bernie sitting snugly in his big coat.

And it certainly caught Momoa's attention, because he posted it to his Instagram account, praising the person behind it, Bryce Utting.

He wrote: "BANGO UNKO BERNIE @berniesanders #UNITY. whoever did this Mahalo for the giggles."

Sharing the meme on Twitter, one user said: "This one wins the internet!"

Another put: "I don't know about you, but this is the winner for me."

While a third added: "Jason Momoa and Bernie for the WIN!!!"

For those of you who don't know, if there are any of you out there, the meme started after viewers watching Joe Biden's inauguration were in awe of Sanders' outfit: a grey winter jacket and some wooly mittens.

I mean, for a 79-year-old braving freezing temperatures, it just sees sensible to me, but people loved it, and they really ran with it, superimposing Bernie on all manner of scenes, from Birdbox and The Mandalorian, to The Hobbit and Pulp Fiction.

Bernie Sanders Memes Take Over The Internet After Inauguration

published ata month ago

They were made by a schoolteacher, Jen Ellis, from his home state. She is said to have used repurposed wool sweaters and recycled plastic bottles to make them, and Bernie also wore them while out on the campaign trail last year.

Speaking about his mittens on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Sanders said: "What was really nice, Seth, is the woman who made the mittens, she is a schoolteacher [and] is a very, very nice person.

"And she's been somewhat overwhelmed by the kind of attention that is being shown to her mittens."

As for the main event, a slightly strange inauguration ceremony saw Mr Biden installed as the 46th President of the United States in front of a small crowd, limited by the restrictions in place to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Donald Trump didn't bother to show up either, although that has less to do with the ongoing pandemic.

In a speech to the country, Biden talked about how 'democracy had prevailed' after troubling times in the USA over the past few weeks and months since the election.
