In a rare moment on Saturday Night Live, the Democrats were the target in a skit mocking their candidates for president.
Usually, it’s the Republicans who are the target, but how could the writers at SNL pass up mocking the Dem candidates like Joe Biden?
The actors roasting the candidates included Wood Harrelson as Joe Biden, Larry David as Bernie Sanders, and Fred Armisen as Michael Bloomberg. Maya Rudolph and Rachel Dratch played Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar, respectively.
Woody Harrelson played a forgetful Joe Biden in a very good imitation, but Larry David, as Bernie Sanders, was probably the closest imitation of a candidate. It’s almost like Larry and Bernie were separated at birth.
The line of the night was when Larry David as Bernie talked about his recent heart attack:
“Doctors were surprised I made it. And I’m very proud of the fact that I was the first heart attack patient to show up to the emergency room in a city bus.”

SNL had to get their jabs in on President Trump, so there was a cold open mocking Trump and a skit mocking Trump with Ambassador Sondland.
It’s still good to see that SNL might be getting the message that they need to throw the conservative fans of SNL a bone once in a while.
