‘Bernie Sandwiches’ Meme Is Now a Video Game

Bernie Sanders supporter creates an app based off MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes’ blunder

In the game, players help Sanders collect sandwiches on the campaign trail.

Bernie Sandwiches’ lives on — in the form of an app. Bernie Sanders supporter Gregory Storm has created the Bernie Sandwiches — Run For The White House app, inspired by MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes’ blunder during breaking news coverage of the New Hampshire primaries.

The app’s description reads, “The popular #BernieSandwiches meme is now an awesome addictive game! Bernie can't make it to the White House on an empty stomach! Help Bernie eat as many sandwiches as possible! The country depends on it!”

Though a portion of the profits made from the game’s ads will be donated to the Sanders campaign, Storm notes in a disclaimer that the game is neither affiliated nor endorsed by it.

For the game, players help Sanders “navigate a path of sandwiches through the primary states,” according to First We Feast.


Hayes is well aware of the new app, and tweeted “Because of course,” with a link to download it.
