No wonder Bernie Sanders is popular with kids. He takes them back to “Sesame Street.” At least his name is a mashup of BFFs Bert and Ernie.
On social media, “Bert + Ernie = Bernie” has become a thing.
Funny thing: Everyone thinks they invented the combo.

You slice your Ernie and Bert dolls down the middle and sew half of one to the other, voila…Bernie!

I now realize why Bernie is so awesome. He is a combination of Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street

I think he’s a great candidate, but “Bernie” sounds like something Bert and Ernie do together on their anniversary.
