Senator Bernie Sanders’s inauguration appearance on Wednesday is receiving a lot of social media attention. It was a historic day when Kamala Harris, the first-ever female vice president in US history took the oath.

The reason became Senator’s less formal appearance at the US President’s Inauguration ceremony, which though had a limited attendance.

But the viewers were keeping a keen eye on the historic event virtually through social media.

Sanders appeared wearing a pair of mittens to keep himself warm in the harsh Washington DC’s cold on the inauguration day. 

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.
