While other A-list guests came wearing regular gloves for keeping their hands warm.
As being reported, those colorful mittens were made by Jen Ellis, a teacher from Essex Junction, Vt. And were given to him two years ago. Mittens were made from repurposed wool sweaters and lined with fleece made from recycled plastic bottles.
When questioned about those cute mittens, Senator Bernie Sanders said, “In Vermont, we dress warmly. We know something about the cold,” chuckling. “And we’re not so concerned about good fashion.”
