Memorable Inauguration Images Include Bernie Sanders' Mittens

NICK EVANS, BYLINE: Columbus City Council will look to those ideas as it starts work on its budget next month.

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Memorable images from yesterday's inauguration include Bernie Sanders mittens. He wore a huge and, no doubt, comfortable pair. People on the Internet lifted a photo of Sanders out of the inauguration and put him on a ski lift, atop the throne from "Game Of Thrones" or sitting on a skyscraper under construction. The Washington Post found the true story. A Vermont teacher made the mittens using repurposed wool sweaters and recycled plastic. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
