Meet the Lesbian School Teacher Who Made Bernie’s Mittens: WATCH

Jen Ellis, the second grade teacher, and the woman behind Bernie Sanders’ mega-viral mittens says she has been overwhelmed with more than 12,000 orders for the mittens and she doesn’t have the time.

According to Jewish Insider: Ellis, who lives with her partner, Liz, and their kindergarten-age daughter who live in Essex Junction, Vermont, said, “she gave the mittens to Sanders as a gift five years ago, but has never met him, even though she is an admirer.”

“Thanks for all the interest in Bernie’s mittens! It truly has been an amazing and historic day! I’m so flattered that Bernie wore them to the inauguration. Sadly, I have no more mittens for sale. There are a lot of great crafters on ETSY who make them,” she Tweeted.

Good Morning America did a segment Ellis on Friday. Watch it below.
