"The race to the White House is long and arduous — and seemingly endless. Yet, in a sea of debates, town halls and campaign speeches, there have been rare moments of levity that cause us to pause — and to furiously create reactionary memes. In these moments, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' side eye is immortalized, as is real estate mogul Donald Trump's toupee.

In the spirit of bringing some degree of comic relief to campaign coverage, here are 11 of the best memes the internet has produced thus far." --Liz Rowley, .Mic
