Bernie Sanders Responds To Fashion Line He Inspired

Former presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders is taking the fashion world by storm.

Well, sort of.

At Paris Fashion Week, Balenciaga's Fall 2017 menswear show featured several Bernie-inspired clothing items.

No, this is not fake news.

Bernie's revolution is continuing in more ways than he might have ever predicted.

CNN's Jake Tapper asked Sanders how he felt about this in a recent interview.

Tapper said,


Bernie laughed and humbly dismissed Tapper's suggestion he's a "fashion icon."

He said,

Perhaps Bernie is selling himself short.

Everyone's favorite socialist grandpa from Vermont has a certain swagger about him — whether he wants to admit it or not.

Bernie has a very no-nonsense attitude, which is a large part of his appeal as a politician (and is reflected in his wardrobe choices — the man has bigger fish to fry).

Correspondingly, in the same interview with Tapper, Sanders also took the opportunity to strongly criticize President Donald Trump.

He said,

Strong words from the politician/fashion icon.

It makes you wonder if Trump will tweet about how the Bernie-inspired fashion line was awful and how much better the Donald J. Trump Collection (made in places like China, Bangladesh, Honduras and Vietnam) is.

What a time to be alive!
