The Real Winner in New Hampshire? 'Bernie Sandwiches'

(JTA) - In the scramble to announce Bernie Sanders’ victory in the New Hampshire Democratic primary Tuesday night, MSNBC host Chris Hayes gave the Internet one of the Jewiest food memes since Hillary Clinton’s gefilte fish “scandal.”

Hayes mistakenly called the Jewish presidential candidate “Bernie Sandwiches” on a live broadcast.

The connection between Sanders’ new status as the first Jew to win a presidential primary and the Jewishness of the deli sandwich was not lost on the Twitterverse.

Some had fun imagining all of the possibilities that a “Bernie Sandwich” presents.

Others seized the opportunity to criticize Sanders’ policy proposals.
