8. He was on James Corden last night too

Well not him live per se, but superimposed behind some staff "watching" the guests... it was pretty funny.

9. I love seeing Bernie EVERYWHERE.

For those of us on the American left, there’s a deeply-embedded truth in this meme.

Like Bernie, we’re masked and somewhat silenced. We feel separated and alone in the cold, even though the truth is that we’re EVERYWHERE. We are, in fact, the majority. We are patiently, hopefully present and watching ... just like Bernie.

It’s an historic meme.

I would like to add one more characteristic: persistent!

A very important quality.

14. Really? Hmmm. That's an interesting take... but, no, I'm just not seeing that.

For those of us on the American left, there’s a deeply-embedded truth in this meme.
I'm on the American left, and I really don't see it that way. Not at all. Nothing as profound with dark symbolism as what you described.

Instead, the explanation (if one is needed) is something that more straightforward and rational. I think it's just creative people gently poking fun at Bernie for how he under-dressed for the important event, and that it was odd how he didn't appear to be interested in socializing or celebrating with others... as if he really didn't want to be there.

As you can see in the many memes that have been created, there are so many possibilities with amusing and surprising visuals. This really has nothing to do with anyone being "silenced", alone, etc. No need to make it more than what it really is. Just enjoy it and laugh along with everyone else.

Laughter is good for the soul. (Especially after four years of horror and anger and fear and outrage.)

And, yes. It makes me laugh.

I can't remember the last time I've laughed so often.

22. I guess the Sad Keanu Reeves meme had a deeply-embedded truth too.

It was an historic meme. Keanu represents so much more than himself.

32. Speaking of TV shows... I thought this one was amusing. (Bernie, all alone on the "Friends" sofa.)

I'm not sure what the significance of the Holstein is.

23. My favorite is Bernie with a pack of coyotes at night caught on a game camera.

Bernie's and the coyotes' eyes are all white reflecting the light of the flash.
