David does Bernie in ‘SNL’ Democratic spoof

When it comes to getting YouTube hits, getting almost two-and-a-half million in 24 hours is good in anyone’s terms. Saturday Night Live’s spoof on CNN’s US Democratic debate last week is so good that it deserves it. Jewish curmudgeon Larry David, who also has his own HBO show, “Curb Your Enthusiasm”, plays Hillary Clinton’s main opponent Bernie Sanders, clearly a role David was born to play.

Slap half a white toupee on his bald spot and Larry David becomes a dead ringer for Bernie Sanders, bouncy hand motions and all. He won laughs on “Saturday Night Live” (SNL) by playing Sanders straight.

But Larry David couldn’t resist throwing in a couple of Seinfeldisms, spewing outrage at the most insignificant of daily annoyances.

One of the classic lines: “Eh, not a fan of the banks,” Larry David (as Bernie Sanders) griped in answer to a question. 

SNLRIGHT: Larry David is almost indistinguishable from the 'real' Sanders - down to the facial expressions and arm gesticulations 

“They trample on the middle class, they control Washington … and why do they chain all their pens to the desk? Who’s trying to steal a pen from a bank? Makes no sense!”


David/Bernie's take on e-mail:

“I forgot my password the other day, so they say: ‘We’ll e-mail you a new one.’ But I can’t get into my e-mail to get the password! I mean, talk about a ball-buster!”

Although pundits are saying the real-life Sanders may not have won the real CNN-hosted debate last week, his “SNL”-alter-ego was “pretttay, pretttay good”. JTA
