What Color Is Bernie Sanders’ Suit At The Democratic Debate? The Internet Can’t Come To An Agreement
Wednesday's debate was contentious. The two Democratic candidates went head to head and answered some very tough questions from Univision reporters Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas . But there was no other issue greater than the color of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders' suit. Was it brown? Was it navy blue? Why would you wear that tie given either color? Bernie Sanders is running his entire campaign on not caring at all about protocol for getting into Washington D.C. parties. He doesn't seem to want to fit in. And all of that is illustrated in the fact that he apparently has no stylist. Again and again, Sanders looks like somone who doesn't have any help in ironing or running to the dry cleaner when it comes to his suits.
That kind of fashion statement is totally in line with his politics. Sanders has been campaigning on being a man of the people. He told NPR on Wednesday:
Sometimes a candidate needs to practice what they preach. But for some on social media, the candidate could pull it together just a little tighter.
They hit a lot of issues. But what color was Bernie's suit?
Bernie’s wearing a brown suit. That is all.— Sam Eveland (@Samagdma) March 10, 2016
I think Bernie's suit is brown, but some pictures I'm seeing make it seem dark blue. AHHHH #DemDebate— Esther P. (@estherp08) March 10, 2016
Notice that Bernie's suit looks like a regular navy suit in this photo not taken from the CNN feed: https://t.co/FR3y8l6bng— Matt Lee (@URFloorMatt) March 10, 2016

Literally the biggest discussion about the #DemDebate is wether Bernie's suit is brown or blue! It's the dress all over again — Blair Waldorf (@blairbearz) March 10, 2016
And Why Should You Care?
I don't care what color Bernie's suit is as long as it isn't "birthday". #DemDebate— Sgt. Fun (@SgtFun) March 10, 2016
The fact that "what color is Bernie's suit?" is trending... is just.... ugh— amy (@amyawsomepants) March 10, 2016
Sure, the color of Bernie's blazer is nothing when it comes to immigration reform or economic policies. But if there is anything to laugh about this election cycle, let it be the guy's suit. He's not laughing. But he's not not laughing either. His jacket was totally brown on Wednesday night, for what it's worth.
