WASHINGTON - A photograph taken of Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) on Inauguration Day by Brendan Smialowski, a former sports photojournalist from Connecticut who documents politics for wire service Agence France-Presse, has taken over social media with what some estimate more than 100,000 memes.

On a day presumed to be entirely about the inauguration President Joseph Biden, it undoubtedly-it seemed-belonged to Mr. Sanders, whose most avid supporters came from young voters during the presidential race. He didn't do anything out the ordinary; he attended the socially-distanced Inauguration with his arms and legs crossed while wearing mittens and a bulky winter coat.

There is pretty much a Bernie meme out there for every taste, view, and scene including many in Indian Country. Bernie outside a sweat lodge. Bernie sitting beside a powwow drum. Bernie at Mato Tipila-Devil's Tower-with the infamous buffalo who gouged a tourist in the Black Hills last summer. Bernie with Nathan Apodaca. Bernie at the Black Hills Powwow. Bernie inside the South Dakota State Capital chambers. It doesn't matter where he is, the overall consensus is it's just funny.
