Video: Larry David is Bernie Sanders on Saturday Night Live – Watch Democratic Debate
Who better to play Democratic Presidential candidate than Bernie Sanders but Larry David?
To say Larry David did an amazing job is an understatement. Larry David began right out of the gate by saying,
“If you don’t mind, I’m gonna dial it right up to a 10. We’re doomed. We need a revolution! Millions of people on the streets! And we gotta do something! And we gotta do it now!”
Also in the skit was Alec Baldwin, who played former Senator Jim Webb, as well as Kate McKinnon who played her usual Hillary Clinton role.
David was so good he stole the spotlight from Alec Baldwin and the always entertaining McKinnon. (After warning the audience that Sanders is promising America a golden goose, her Clinton says, “There is no golden goose, so America, follow me, because I’ve got some chicken that will do.”)
David stole the show playing Bernie Sanders. Was this a one time thing? Or will this be an ongoing role? It probably depends on how far Sanders goes in his bid for President of the United States.
