This will give you all the feels.

Posted on

During debate night, Bernie Sanders decided to let everyone know he was tuning in.

It's #debatenight so it's time to #DebateWithBernie.

He probably didn't expect everyone to get all the feels as a result.

Bernie Sanders watching our country fall apart is the saddest thing of 2016

that picture of Bernie Sanders watching the debate from his TV makes me so sad

Pretty soon people said it reminded them of other harrowing moments.

Including another famously moving viral Twitter picture.

Debate with papaw tonight...❤️ he made 12 burgers for all 6 grandkids and I'm the only one who showed. 😢 love him

And then people just started memeing like mad.

Let's hope he got to watch the good stuff afterwards.

.@BernieSanders: Phew, glad that's over! Time for the good stuff. #DebateNight
