Internet Reacts To Bernie Sanders Dropping Out
Of course, how can you forget the internet and the memes?
Bernie Sanders might have dropped out, but it broke the hearts of many of his young fans. Bernie supporters are notorious for their passion and loyalty. Which is why they did not disappoint in showing their love for him. So, let’s take a look at how the internet reacted to Bernie dropping out.
Some sad and teary reacts on the Internet
Before we head over to the good stuff (memes, of course), we should take a look at some of the more somber stuff, right? The saddest tweet was from Bernie Sanders’ apprentice, Alexandra Ocasio Cortez (AOC). She gave Bernie the tribute that he rightfully deserves in her tweet:
Thank you Bernie – for doing your best to fight for all of us, from the beginning, for your entire life.
Thank you for fighting hard, lonely fights in true devotion to a people’s movement in the United States.
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 8, 2020
Other than that, Joe Biden also gave Bernie Sanders a befitting tribute. Moreover, he also tried his best to win over some Bernie Supporters to his camp. He even used their motto, “Not me, Us”. Here’s his full statement, and the Twitter thread:
I know Bernie well. He’s a good man, a great leader, and one of the most powerful voices for change in our country. And it’s hard to sum up his contributions to our politics in one, single tweet. So I won’t try to. https://t.co/Z6OkCDWFNm

Other than that, there were some very wholesome responses from his die-hard fans too. For instance, here’s a tribute to Bernie when he was protesting during the days of the Civil Rights movement in the 60s.
Where it all started.

This just goes to show how far back Bernie Sanders’ struggle goes for the people. So much so, that he even didn’t fear an arrest by the authorities.
Well, now that we’re here with the emotional tweets, let’s look at the more hilarious reactions by some hilarious Bernie Supporters!
Twitter and some Bernie memes!
There is nothing on the internet without any memes about it. I’m pretty sure that’s an unspoken rule by now. Therefore, let’s take a look at some of the most viral memes that went haywire on the internet as soon as Bernie Sanders called off his campaign. And a lot of them were about how America simply doesn’t deserve Bernie.

But there’s more. And if I’m being honest, this one had me in tears. Both sad, and happy tears.

Adding to these incredible memes, there was a Bernie-Avatar The last Airbender crossover too! A sad one, in fact.

And last, but certainly not the least, Bernie’s dropping out might have inspired a Batman origin story too!

Moreover, how can we forget our favorite New Jersey businessman/mafia boss Tony Soprano? He also had his say over Bernie dropping out!
These were just some of the best memes and jokes that went around Twitter. Even though these Bernie supporters might be joking, a lot of them shed real tears after his announcement yesterday. This is how the internet reacted, but one thing’s for sure, they and everyone still love Bernie Sanders and wish him all the best. He might not have won the election, but his campaign did not fail.
