A memetic video of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is making the rounds on Twitter.
In the video, which is fast approaching three-quarters of a million views at this writing, a voice pretending to be Sanders say, “Any female born after 1993 can’t cook. All they know is McDonald’s, charge they phone, twerk, be bisexual, eat hot chip and lie.”
Although the voice impression is actually quite good, the video could be described as a shallow fake at best. Sanders’ mouth doesn’t come close to matching the audio dubbed over it.
It’s also just a fun joke, the quote itself from a tweet that went viral last year.
None of that stopped a ton of people from falling for it, much to others’ amusement.
People who got the joke slid into the thread with some jokes of their own.
The Twitter account @ariasagirl, who wrote the line, told the Daily Dot via messenger that they didn’t know about the Sanders video.
“Honestly, I’ve seen one’s of Trump, Obama, and even Jesus, so it’s not too shocking,” they wrote.
“But I love that the meme has made it this far.”
