Politico's Illustration Of Bernie Sanders Has People LOLing After They Realize He Looks More Like Chevy Chase
After Bernie Sanders won the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, February 11, Politico announced the victory with a small, hand-drawn portrait of the Senator.

When people saw "Chevy Chase" trending on Twitter, many assumed the worst.

Surely Chase has earned the Presidency for his unforgettable Hollywood roles?
Vote for Fletch in 2020. #ChevyChase This tweet will fall flat amongst the under 40 crowd. https://t.co/miuetSenRS— Portland Beer 🌎🍺 (@Portland Beer 🌎🍺) 1581489681.0
