Woman Behind Bernie Sanders’ Iconic Mittens Quit Making Them Because High Taxes Killed Her Business


The Vermont school teacher who made Bernie Sanders’ mittens, featured in the most recent viral meme, said she had to stop making them after the federal government taxed her too much.

“People have been contacting me thinking that they can get mittens, and actually they can’t. I don’t have any more, and I don’t have much of a mitten business anymore because it really wasn’t worth it,” Jen Ellis explained to Slate. “Independent crafters get really taken for a ride by the federal government. We get taxed to the nth degree, and it wasn’t really worth it pursuing that as a business, even as a side hustle.

Even though Sanders admitted in 2019 that he would raise taxes on the middle class to support his Medicare for All plan, Ellis has shown support for the senator, sending him the repurposed sweater mittens in 2016 because she was “heartbroken” that he lost the Democratic nomination and “probably wouldn’t run again.”


Lady is a moron.

  1. No sympathy. You support the man who supported raising your taxes? So you went out of business? No sympathy. At all.

  2. The simple minded bitch thought her cute little antics would gain her some notoriety along with some appreciation from her demonstration of support.
    She saw what she wanted to see in these monsters not what they are.
    Play with snakes and you’re going to get bit.
    I hope this simpleton is no longer teaching!

  3. …unable to reconcile the fact that the candidate she loves promulgates policies that deliberately destroy the business she loves, she sends him the last fruits of that business as a token of love.

    No facts are allowed to enter into her voting calculus, even facts that show her choices are directly deleterious to her own Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness, and she KNOWS they are.


    …yet another argument against Woman’s Sufferage, just sayin’

  4. In appreciation Bernie has made arrangements for her to be moved to the head of the line for a covid shot!

  5. Maybe she can knit some for the people riding in the boxcars to the re-education de-radicalization camps.

    She’s so dumb she’ll probably knit the rope they’ll hang her with. What a maroon!

  6. And yet she still thinks everything should be ‘free’ instead of government just getting out of your life. Great to know she teaches too. Just wait until Joe gets his $15 min wage, see how many people go out of business or become sole proprietors with no employees.

  7. She reminds me of Paula Poundstone’s cat. As a prank, Paula shot her cat with a water gun while it wasn’t looking. The cat immediately ran to Paula for protection.

  8. Lot of that kind of cognitive dissonance among the Vermont liberal morons. It’s ruining the state, slowly but steadily.
