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.

Others seized the opportunity to criticize Sanders’ policy proposals.
