Vermont's Junior Senator Stood In Front Of Some Logs Monday And The Internet Snapped
Monday night, Vermont's Sen. Bernie Sanders gave a remotely-delivered speech during the virtual Democratic National Convention, pitching voters to pick former Vice President Joe Biden in the November presidential election. Parts of the internet, however, were preoccupied with the junior senator's chosen backdrop: a rather striking pile of logs.
Twitter had many a pun...
