Bernie Sanders brought a giant poster of a Donald Trump tweet to the floor of the U.S. Senate this week for some strange reason. He was apparently trying to make a point about Social Security.

Bernie Sanders displays giant Trump tweet on Senate floor
With the fight over health care in Congress brewing, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders took to the Senate floor Wednesday afternoon to argue against the Republican plan to repeal Obamacare. And Sanders brought with him a visual aid to help make his point: a poster-size print of a tweet from President-elect Donald Trump.
In the May 7, 2015, tweet, which came before Trump announced his presidential campaign, the real estate mogul bragged that he was the first potential GOP candidate to pledge no cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid — and that former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee had “copied” him.
Watch the video:
People got creative with the image and used it to mock Bernie on Twitter:

That is pretty funny.
Bernie Sanders still sounds like a cranky old man yelling at kids to get off his lawn, doesn’t he?
Maybe it’s time for him to retire.
