Sanders Doesn’t Know What Instagram Is

"What is that thing?" Sanders asked. "This is called Instagram," Barnes responded.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) didn’t seem to know what the photo-sharing app Instagram was while taping an Instagram story with the Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor of Wisconsin, Mandela Barnes, on Monday.

In a video Barnes posted on his Instagram account on Monday, he tells Sanders “it’s recording.”

“What is that thing?” Sanders asked.

“This is called Instagram,” Barnes responded.

Sanders seemed confused by the Instagram story concept because Barnes had to have Sanders record a second message.

Cap Times reporter Jessie Opoien tweeted the exchange:

It’s somewhat surprising that 77-year-old Sanders, who rose to prominence in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary in part because of his appeal to millennial voters, would not know about the immensely popular app.
