Saturday Night Live opened with a hodgepodge of political news delivered by CNN’s Jake Tapper — played by cast member Beck Bennett — and a surprise appearance by Larry David — once again reprising his dead-on version of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders to thunderous applause.
“I want to thank everyone for voting for me, and apologize to everyone else for making your Facebook page so so annoying. I mean, I love my supporters, but they’re too much, right? I’m not that great,” Sanders told the audience before adding, “With all due respect to my voters: get a life!”
Explaining his appeal, Sanders stated, “My message is resonating with with a very diverse group of white people,” before adding “of all ages: 18-year-olds and 19-year-olds. Eh — that’s it. The young people love me, Tapper. Because I’m like them: I got a lot of big plans and absolutely no idea how to achieve them.”
Playing Donald Trump, Darrell Hammond introduced former candidate Ben Carson (Jay Pharoah) — who recently endorsed the businessman — explaining, “My guest today is so tremendous. Dr. Ben Carson is a very special man — and for once I don’t mean that as an insult for the mentally challenged.”
SNL also did a quick turnaround on black protesters being assaulted at Trump rallies with Carson nursing a black eye using a Trump steak as Trump admonished his fans, “Guys! What did I say? Not this one! This is one of the good ones!”

Stephen Colbert details ‘petty’ Trump’s 46-minute ‘pants-filling tantrum’ to ‘kamikaze MAGA dead-enders’
"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert walked through President Donald Trump's recent 46-minute Facebook rant in an epic opening monologue Wednesday night.
Thursday will mark one month since the election, and "the president has spent that entire time throwing a loud, pants-filling tantrum," said Colbert. "If we don't change presidents soon, he's going to get a rash."
He explained that the world had been subjected to Trump's "call to arms" for his supporters, seeking to overthrow the election and nullify the will of the people.
Trump witness at Rudy’s Michigan hearing demands photo ID because ‘all Chinese look alike’
President Donald Trump's latest election fraud "hearing" in Michigan brought together a motley crew of witnesses including one woman who went off on a rant about photo ID.
Michigan requests a photo ID but doesn't mandate it to vote. But that isn't enough for one woman who said it's necessary to tell Chinese people apart.
"I think all Chinese look alike, so how would you tell?" she asked.
If the woman at the hearing has a hard time telling the difference between Chinese people, she may also have trouble looking at a photo of a person and telling if they're the same person on the ID. Voter rolls also don't have photos of the voter included in them.
WATCH: Rudy Giuliani tries to shut up his own witness as voter fraud hearing goes off the rails
At an election fraud hearing in Michigan on Wednesday, Rudy Giuliani brought forth a witness — but her testimony was so incoherent and embarrassing that near the end, even Giuliani himself appeared to be trying to get her to stop talking.
"That poll book is off by 100,000!" claimed the woman. "Why don't you look at the registered voters on there? ... what was the turnout rate, 120 percent?"
As she continued to talk, Giuliani reached his arm towards her, as if half trying to get her to stop and look around at him.
