Lebanese singer Haifa Wehbe has poked her own fun on the Bernie Sander’s viral meme when she shared her own version on Twitter.
The Lebanese diva presented her own take, posting a 2019 photoshoot of herself leaning against a gas pump featuring Sanders on his now-famous sitting position.
“Your heart is snow… My heart is fire,” she captioned the post.
It all began with an image of the US Senator on Inauguration Day, which made waves across the internet, sparking thousands of photoshopped memes on social media.
The photo of the independent Vermont senator wearing mittens and a cozy brown coat has been photoshopped in multiple different scenarios, historical moments, movie scenes, famous paintings, even Lebanese funny memes, and more.
Social media users edited the 79-year-old into a number of different scenarios, even editing the senator and his famous gloves into the pottery making scene from the classic film “Ghost” starring Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze.
The senator’s campaign store went on to release a sweatshirt featuring the meme, with all of the proceeds going toward Meals on Wheels Vermont, an organization that provides meals to Vermonters under age 60 with chronic conditions or disabilities.
The crewneck has since sold out.
During an interview on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Thursday, Sanders said he had no idea the photo of him had become an internet sensation.
“I was just sitting there trying to keep warm, trying to pay attention to what was going on,” he told Meyers.
Well, even The961 gave their own spin on the meme!
