Proudly adorned with fluffy white hair and spectacles, the infants of #BabiesForBernie have captured the heart of the Internet with their cuteness. The Internet campaign supporting Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders started with Ashira Siegel Fox. She posted a picture of her son, which is so adorable it’s tempting to set it as your desktop background. What started as a meme is now a website selling t-shirts and onesies to raise money for Sanders’ campaign and a Facebook group with more than 400 members.
“We are parents who want Bernie Sanders to be elected as President of the United States in 2016,” the Babies For Bernie website states. “All parents want a better future for their children. Bernie Sanders is going to get us there!” The trend has caught on, and #BabiesForBernie has taken off on social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Here are five of the best #BabiesForBernie so far:
1. Best trendsetting baby
2. Best “looks-like-a-grandpa” baby
3. Best paint-on Bernie hair
4. Best “We’re gonna explain what Democratic Socialsm is” fist
5. Best “Sick and tired of hearing about ya damn emails!” smile
Even Bernie Sanders’ official website made a statement about the photos going viral of babies wearing the Vermont senator’s look.
Babies For Bernie is causing people to #FeelTheBern in their hearts, and no matter who your preferred 2016 candidate is, the mind-boggling cuteness of these pictures is undeniable.
