The Funniest Bernie Sanders Side Eye Jokes Prove He's The Master Of Giving The Look
This Sunday's Democratic presidential debate has put one more accomplishment under candidate Bernie Sanders' belt: He is officially the master of the side eye. During the debate, in which the Vermont Senator had to endure some grueling banter from his fellow contenders, viewers picked up on just how frequently he was giving casting withering glaces their way. Here are some of the funniest Bernie Sanders side eye jokes, stemming from a moment in which it seems that Sanders just couldn't take what Clinton had to say seriously.
After the moderator asked Sanders and Clinton what the major difference between them was regarding their takes on Wall Street, Sanders asserted that he would not "take money from big banks." He went on to say, "I don't get personal speaking fees from Goldman Sachs." Jumping in on her defense, Clinton then hit Sanders with this line:
... Where we disagree is the comments that Senator Sanders has made that don't just affect me, I can take that, but he's criticized President Obama for taking donations from Wall Street, and President Obama has led our country out of the great recession. Senator Sanders called him weak, disappointing. He even, in 2011, publicly sought someone to run in a primary against President Obama.
This is where Sanders shot Clinton the now-famous side eye. The worst seemed to come when Clinton attempted to nail him for calling Obama weak and disappointing. In response, the Internet let loose — and in many cases, rallied behind Sanders and his look:
I think that we can all agree that, regardless of any polling or fancy analysis, Bernie Sanders' side eye definitely won the debate tonight, no questions asked.
