WASHINGTON (WSPA) – A New York University student has created a tool that puts an image of mittened, inaugural Bernie Sanders at any location.
The picture of Sanders sitting at Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday took social media by storm as he waited in his coat and now-iconic mittens.
Student Nick Sawhney tweeted about his new website—which uses Google Maps street view to put the Independent Vermont Senator at any address—and said he was trying his best to keep it from crashing.

Sanders’ appearance wearing his signature Burton coat and fuzzy mittens has its own heartwarming backstory.
The mittens were created by Vermont teacher Jane Ellis. Ellis made the mittens from repurposed wool sweaters and lined them with fleece from recycled plastic bottles.
The mittens have sold out for now, as has a sweatshirt created for Bernie Sanders’ website store titled the “Chairman Sanders Crewneck,” and described as “Vermont jacket, Vermont gloves, Vermont common sense.” All proceeds go to Meals on Wheels Vermont.
