Bernie Sanders Brings Tweets to the Senate refers to a series of photoshops of an image of Bernie Sanders bringing a large, printed tweet of Donald Trump to the United States Senate while making an argument in favor of Obamacare. In the photoshops, Trump's tweet is replaced with various tweets and humorous images.
On January 4th, 2017, Bernie Sanders spoke to the United States Senate arguing in favor of keeping Obamacare, which Republicans had been working to repeal. In his argument, he brought a printout of a tweet made by Donald Trump that reads, "I was the first & only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid. Huckabee copied me," illustrating that on the campaign trail, Trump promised to keep benefits promised by Obamacare. The image of Bernie standing next to the tweet, shown below, inspired photoshops.
The image first drew commentary on how people found it strange that tweets were being brought to the Senate floor. The person who brought the poster tweeted that Ted Cruz chuckled at him as he carried it to the Senate. This inspired Twitter user @HapaxLegoman to tweet an image of Sanders standing next to an awkward Ted Cruz tweet about his daugher's love of butter (shown below).
As that image and several other photoshops began spreading on Twitter, Gizmodo invited its readers to create photoshops of it, asking "What Large Poster Should Bernie Have Brought to the Senate Floor?" SelectAll covered the spread of the jokes on January 4th, 2017, and the tweets made Twitter Moments the following day.
