Business Insider politics reporter Joe Perticone noticed the similarities in a recent tweet, prompting a cascade of replies along the lines of, “How did we not see this before?”
Sanders and Schumer are Democratic politicians. Statler and Waldorf are the Muppets characters best known for heckling other Muppets from their balcony seats. Sanders and Schumer are Jewish. Statler and Waldorf are not, or are they?
Waldorf: “You never told me you worked in the senate.”
Statler: “That’s because nobody in the senate works!” pic.twitter.com/EEeBo9812O
