Politics? Pah! What we really want to know is what color was Bernie Sanders' suit as he took part in an immigration-focused democratic debate with Hillary Clinton on Wednesday, March 9.

In a Twitter moment reminiscent of 2015's "The Dress" saga, viewers jumped onto the Internet while the debate ensued, to discuss Sanders’ choice of attire, as partners, friends and siblings argued about the hue of the politico's suit.

"Brown suit a bold DemDebate fashion choice for Sanders," one online commentator opined.

"Is Sanders' suit….eggplant colored? Serious question," queried another.

"Bernie Sanders's suit looks brown to me. @AaronBlake says its blue. Who's right?," asked another, before the inevitable comparisons started between the suit, and the now infamous Roman Originals dress, from back in February 2015.

In the end, Sanders' rapid response director chimed in with a response: "The suit senator sanders is wearing tonight is blue." Really? Blue?!
