What Color Is Bernie Sanders' Suit? Twitter Debates During #DemDebate
Brown, blue or black? While Sanders faced off with Hillary Clinton, viewers took to social media to argue over what color the Vermont senator was wearing.
During tonight's Democratic presidential debate, another debate was taking place on social media over the color of Bernie Sanders' suit.
As the Vermont senator appeared on the CNN/Univision event to square off against Hillary Clinton in Miami, viewers watching at home were quick to comment on Sanders, who appeared to be making a style statement with his brown suit.
Bernie, I like the brown suit. Nice change from the uniforms candidates like to wear.#DEMDEBATE— thefieldnegro (@fieldnegro) March 10, 2016
I'm just going to take a stand here, an hour in, and say I dig the Sanders brown suit. It works.— Matt Bai (@mattbai) March 10, 2016
But others were seeing blue.
Could be blue. https://t.co/R4bHUwcOI2— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) March 10, 2016
Did I miss Senator Sanders do a quick change or is his suit the new Dress?? pic.twitter.com/7VN5AkjGvI— Christine (@christinedisaba) March 10, 2016
The color debate sparked campaign spokesperson Mike Casca to weigh in, confirming that Sanders' suit is, in fact, blue.
the suit senator sanders is wearing tonight is blue.— mike casca (@cascamike) March 10, 2016
Which propelled the argument even further, with some questioning if "the suit" was the next "the dress" (the viral "white-and-gold or blue-and-black?" question that divided the nation last year).
Half of Twitter is confused about the color of Bernie's suit. For once, the discussion isn't about the woman candidate's clothes. Still...— Sarah Granger (@sarahgranger) March 10, 2016
