Damn, we miss you and your oldness, Bernie. In the ultimate ‘old dude trying to relate to the young’ move, ole’ Bernie Brooklyn literally printed out one of Donald Trump‘s tweets. Have you ever seen a tweet this large on your life? Shout out to the intern that suggested this.
With the fight over health care in Congress brewing, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders took to the Senate floor Wednesday afternoon to argue against the Republican plan to repeal Obamacare. And Sanders brought with him a visual aid to help make his point: a poster-size print of a tweet from President-elect Donald Trump.
In the May 7, 2015, tweet, which came before Trump announced his presidential campaign, the real estate mogul bragged that he was the first potential GOP candidate to pledge no cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid — and that former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee had “copied” him.
I was the first & only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid. Huckabee copied me.

But who cares about all of that political mumbo-jumbo? All I know at this point is that Russia is bad and we’re about to have a nuke-off. Good times. Anyway, it was only a matter of time (seconds, actually) until the internet memed the hell out of this.
