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