As it turns out, Bernie Sanders dominates the Meme World. There are reasons for this, and Naomi Klein does a good job of guessing at them in The Intercept (see link below). But we have our own interpretation: We all wore mittens growing up if we lived in parts of the U.S. where it snows.
Maybe Bernie makes us believe we can get back to the America we once knew. No, not the racist, sexist bits. But the part where government was accountable and Americans had a sense of security.
