Paramedics respond to lifesized Bernie Sanders outside home

New Orleans EMS personnel responded to a report of possible cardiac arrest, Friday.
What they found was a life-sized Bernie Sanders-like figure seated in a chair, complete with a box of Popeye’s Chicken.
The Sanders ‘doll’ was appropriately made up with a coat, sweater and a set of big mittens to complete the look of the 79-year-old Vermont senator.
The Times-Picayune/New Orleans Advocate reports the Bernie doll was used by some New Orleans residents in their house float decorations.
No word on how he ended up seated by the front door of home, so he could be mistaken for an actual senior citizen in distress on a cold morning like this.
The EMS team posed with the Bernie-like and posted the humorous tweet.
