Bernie Sanders is back in Congress for all you millennials looking to squeeze every morsel of socialist rhetoric from the former Democratic presidential candidate. The Vermont Senator took the floor on Wednesday to address the Senate on a number of concerns he has as President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration is fast approaching.
In an effort to either make a point or go viral on the internet, Bernie printed a giant Trump tweet to show that Trump promised not to cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.
The tweet from May 2015 read: “I was the first & only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid. Huckabee copied me.”
Here’s a clip of his speech (start around the 9:50 mark):
However, the internet is focusing less on the Senator’s words as they are on his actions of printing a giant Trump tweet. So, the internet took over with a photoshop contest of what Bernie should’ve printed instead.
Here are some gems:
