In case you have been off of the internet for a week, there’s a meme trend of Bernie Sanders wearing mittens that has been going viral.
Bernie’s mittens were made by a woman named Jen Ellis. She gave the senator the mittens in 2016.
Now, she has pairs available on eBay-one pair going for $830!
The eBay auction page includes a message from Jen, saying, “One pair will be for my daughters college fund, one pair for Outright Vermont and this pair for a local dog rescue, Passion 4 Paws Vermont. All to be auctioned off for fundraisers. I am so flattered that people want my mittens and wish I could make them for everyone.”
