Bernie Sanders wasn’t the only draw at his first rally in Brooklyn today. Someone made a snowman dressed in Bernie-themed clothing. Now it’s called Brrrrnie Sanders because it was 33-degrees and snowy when people lined up for hours to see Sanders’ first rally in Brooklyn.
Here are some photos of the delightful snowman.
He was a great photo-op.
The Bernie Sanders snowman was a sign of how excited his supporters were about Sanders’ run for the presidency and his very first rally.
Everyone wanted to pose with Brrrrnie Sanders.
The snowman also got a lot of attention on social media too.
It’s estimated that at least 15,000 people will be in Sanders’ rally today. That’s an early estimate, and numbers are often higher once all is said and done.
In fact, there were concerns that so many showed up, some might need to be turned away.
And now back to the snowman.
The rally began on Saturday, March 2 at 11:30 a.m Eastern. The doors opened at 10 a.m. Sanders was expected to deliver a deeply personal speech on Saturday, CNN reported. He’ll be talking about his own family’s struggles, including talking about his father immigrating from Poland. Many members of Sanders’ family were killed by Nazis. One part of his speech will read: “I had the role model of a father who had unbelievable courage in journeying across an ocean, with no money in his pocket and not knowing a word of English.”
Sanders’ second event will be tomorrow in Chicago on Sunday, March 3.This event will be hosted at the Navy Pier and it will start at 7 p.m. local time at 600 E. Grand Ave. in Chicago. Tickets are not needed, but entry will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. Chicago is near and dear to Sanders, since he attended the University of Chicago.
