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.
Bernie Sanders: How can I attend this very establishment and insider event and still claim to be an outsider? Oh, I'll dress badly. #WHCD— K (@KittyHipoint) May 1, 2016
Bernie Sanders is wearing a two-piece suit. He will likely make some billionaires uncomfortable if he uses the "tuxedo" bathroom #WHCD— The Daily Edge (@TheDailyEdge) May 1, 2016
Symone Sanders, his press secretary, tweeted that he doesn't "really" own a tuxedo.
That moment when everyone realizes your boss really doesn't own a tux...but it's cool #WHCD

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.
