Watch Larry David and Bernie Sanders 'Bern It Up' on Saturday Night Live

Last night Sen. Bernie Sanders made his much anticipated, first appearance on Saturday Night Live. He played a Jewish Democratic socialist immigrant coming to America on a sinking Titanic-like ship.

Sanders appeared in the skit with the show's host, comedian Larry David, where David was seeking special help over women and children because he is wealthy and felt his life was more valuable to save.

“Hold on, hold on, wait a second,” Democratic presidential candidate Sanders said to applause from the crowd as he first appeared on stage to counter David's plea. “I’m so sick of the one percent getting this preferential treatment,” he said. “Enough is enough.”

In another hilarious skit in last night's show, Bern Your Enthusiasm, David, playing Sanders, kept finding ways to upset voters during the Iowa caucus.

Watch here:

Sanders is not the first presidential candidate to appear on Saturday Night Live this season. Hillary Clinton played a sympathetic bartender named “Val” who served SNL’s Kate McKinnon vodka as she did her much celebrated impression of Clinton. And, Donald Trump was the first presidential front-runner to ever host Saturday Night Live.

India's New Delhi has been called the "world air pollution capital" for its high concentrations of particulate matter that make it harder for its residents to breathe and see. But one thing has puzzled scientists, according to The Guardian. Why does New Delhi see more blinding smogs than other polluted Asian cities, such as Beijing?

This has led to a housing insecurity issue throughout the country, one which construction company Woodpecker is working hard to solve.
