Recently, a photo of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders has been popular with American netizens.
The photo was taken on the inauguration of the new President Biden. Sanders wore wool gloves and a thick coat.
At present, peripheral goods derived from this photo have raised nearly $1.8 million for Sanders’ Vermont charity.
According to Al Jazeera, Sanders’s photo is popular on social networks because his image of “fully armed” over the winter that day does not seem to attend the inauguration of the President of the United States.
According to the U.S. political news website Politico on the 24th, this photo not only became a “heat terrier” widely spread, but also triggered a “P-picture fever”, in which Sanders sitting in a chair was used as material and put him in pictures such as movie scenes, world famous paintings or historical events.
Sanders announced on the 27th that the money donated to the charity was raised by selling some of his peripheral goods.
Sanders said that on the evening of the 21st, he posted the first “Chairman Sanders” (Chairman Sanders pun) on his website, including T-shirts, sweatshirts, etc., which refer to both people sitting in chairs and representing him as chairman of the Senate budget committee.
It was sold out in less than 30 minutes. After increasing inventory again, the goods also sold out in a very short time.
In a written statement, Sanders said he was surprised by the creativity of many people in making peripheral goods and was also happy to help Vermonters through his network visibility.
Sanders also said that he will do everything he can to the U.S. Congress to get the people of the United States the economic relief they need for the coronavirus.
