Bernie Sanders Threw His Hands Up During The Debate And A Brilliant Meme Was Born

The viral moment inspired an EDM song.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) threw his hands up in despair during Tuesday night’s Democratic debate and immediately spawned a meme on Twitter.

The viral moment came during a testy exchange with former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, who alleged Sanders’ policies were too radical to win the presidency.

Sanders threw his hands up at the claim.

“No, throw your hands up,” said Hickenlooper.
