Sen. Bernie Sanders has caught the world's attention today with some very eye-catching mittens. Read on to check them out...
Joe Biden is now officially the forty-sixth president of the United States...
And history has well and truly been made as Biden's administration takes over the reigns of our country.
Although the inauguration this morning was missing its usual crowds of supporters...
Many famous faces were invited along to witness and participate in the scared event, including the likes of Lady Gaga and the Obamas.
Former leader of the Democratic party, Bernie Sanders, was also present for the event...
But he's become something of a fashion mogul online in the last few hours... and it's all because of the huge mittens he was wearing!

Now, the run-up to Biden's inauguration was a tense one, to say the least.
Since his election victory on November 7th, our country has experienced political tensions like never before.
Most people have been arguing that Biden's win was a fair one and after 4 long days of vote counting - and plenty of recounting - the Democrat was projected as the forty-sixth president of the United States.
However, people on the other side of the political spectrum have been arguing otherwise.
Former president, Donald Trump, instantly attacked Biden's win with several unproven accusations of electoral fraud - and, of course, his loyal supporters added fuel to the flames with gusto.
Trump was doing everything in his power to fight the election result...
And 2 weeks ago on January 6th, enraged pro-Trumpers took matters into their own hands.
After repeated instructions by Trump to "fight for the White House," hundreds of his supporters stormed the sacred U.S Capitol building.
During which a joint session of Congress had convened to formally count the Electoral College votes and certify Joe Biden's election win.

Things quickly became violent and the world watched on, horrified, as the building was overtaken and vandalized by the rioters.
These horrific scenes lead to Trump's second impeachment...
And the fact that the former president refused to take any form of responsibility for the violence carried out by his extremist supporters is believed to have strongly contributed to his impeachment.
As we all know, Trump didn't attend today's inauguration.
He confirmed his absence in a tweet earlier this month before being banned from Twitter and, instead, he left Washington D.C this morning on Air Force One to go and stay at the Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida.
Nevertheless, regardless of Trump's absence, the inauguration went ahead smoothly earlier this morning...
And the entire world was watching on as Biden and his vice president, Kamala Harris, gracefully took their oaths.
And the moment that his supporters had been waiting for finally came.
Joe Biden is officially the president of the United States and Kamala Harris is now our first-ever female vice president.
It was a historical moment to witness Biden be inaugurated as the forty-sixth president of the United States...
And thankfully, the entire event ran smoothly without any disruption or feared security breaches.
Alongside our country, the world watched the big event.

With many praising it for being held with dignity, class, and grace.
The ceremony was jam-packed...
And was filled with star-studded guests such as Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, the Obamas, and Amanda Gorman.
Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is the former leader of the Democratic Party, was also in attendance...
But he's become the main talking-point on Twitter after people saw the huge mittens he was sporting in the cold weather... and they are well and truly obsessed.
