Political Nerds Caption Viral Photo of Bernie and Warren on a Flight: ‘Would a Socialist Recline His Chair?’
A photo of Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) ending up in coach on a flight together is going viral on Twitter.
Off2Miami! @BernieSanders in Seat 15A Thought Bubble: “Is she going to kick my chair? I know she’s going to kick my chair! Elizabeth, don’t even think of kicking my chair!” @ewarren in 16A Thought Bubble: “I’m going to kick it the exact moment he thinks I won’t.” @thehill pic.twitter.com/jOTAJSyIwu

Both of the 2020 election opponents have window seats, with Warren seated behind Sanders in the flight.
Twitter politicos were quick to pounce both on the seating arraignment and the senators’ seatmate looking directly at the camera.
Many also noted the seating arraignment reflects how Warren is close behind and gaining on Sanders, an early frontrunner, in recent polling.
