Election season continues to be the best thing to happen to Saturday Night Live since… well, last election season.
Last week’s real-life campaign moments — Carson’s endorsement of Trump, Sanders’ upset in Michigan and Chicago’s Trump protests — provided ample fodder for last night’s cold open, including everyone’s favorite Bernie Sanders impression by Larry David.
“I want to thank everyone who voted for me,” David-as-Sanders pronounced, “and apologize to everyone else for making your Facebook feed so, so annoying. I mean, I love my supporters, but they’re too much, right? I’m great, but I’m not five-posts-a-day great! With all due respect to my supporters: Get a life.”
But David-as-Sanders isn’t worried about alienating his key demographic. “My message is resonating with a very diverse group of white people. And I’ve got supporters of all ages: 18-year-olds, 19-year-olds,” he says.
“The young people love me because I’m like them. I’ve got a lot of big plans, and absolutely no idea how to achieve them.”
We also got an answer to why all of his suits are so baggy. (He wears pajamas underneath.)
The Carson-Trump bits had some gems too, referring to the duo as “ebony and orange-y” and describing Carson as “a pretty creepy dude [who] looks like he looks like he drives a hollowed-out ice cream truck.”
“[Trump] gave me a muffin,” responded Carson, unfazed.
“Let’s get this guy a juicebox and a nap,” said Trump.
This is shaping up to be one of the more polarizing elections in recent history, so we'll take the laughs where we can get them!
