Bernie Sanders at White House Correspondents' Dinner 2016

Everyone's Analyzing Bernie Sanders's Outfit at the White House Correspondents' Dinner

Bernie Sanders is at the White House Correspondents' Dinner and people are freaking out over his outfit — a suit and tie.

What's the big deal? He's not wearing a tuxedo, which is typical of the formal event. People are taking it as an intentional sign of his outsider status.

Symone Sanders, his press secretary, tweeted that he doesn't "really" own a tuxedo.

We spotted Sanders at the Atlantic/CBS preparty ahead of the White House Correspondents' Dinner, and man, was he popular. He was practically getting swarmed by people hoping to take selfies with him.

See who else showed up to President Obama's last White House Correspondents' Dinner.
