Babies Dressed Like Bernie Sanders Won the Internet Last Week

No matter which way your politics lean, there's no denying a cute baby. And an adorable baby dressed up like Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders? It's just too much. Once you see the pictures below, you'll see why the hashtag #babiesforberniesanders has been taking the Internet by storm the past few days.

It all started with Los Angeles mom and artist Ashira Siegel. As she tells CNN, upon learning that she was going to miss a Bernie Sanders rally due to baby duties, she posted a picture of her baby boy Nathan with his little fist raised in the air to a Sanders supporter group online. Soon she had received an offer from a fellow supporter to Photoshop Sanders-like glasses and hair on the baby. Thinking this was all just for fun, Siegel was shocked when her image quickly went viral.

According to the new mom, "I didn't have an agenda ... I had been a bit frustrated with having a newborn and locked on the couch, so it was a kind of a nice way to be able to participate in the conversation and support while still being able to be with my son."

Soon, more and more Sanders fans started posting their own pictures of babies dressed like Bernie Sanders.

And the rest, as they say, is Internet history.
