As promised, 2016 Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders met his SNL debut, appearing opposite his doppelganger played by comedian Larry David.


Playing two elderly men on a sinking ship, David, portrayed a rich man stating he deserved to be the first to safety due to his wealth.

Staying true to form, Sanders shouted, "I'm so upset with the one percent getting this preferential treatment," before making a suggestion: "Enough is enough. We need to unite and work together if we're going to get through this."

"Sounds like Socialism to me," David said, dismissing him.

"Democratic socialism!" Sanders countered.

"What's the difference?" David asked.

Mimicking Donald Trump, Sanders replied, "Yuuuuge difference."
