It was a Jewish ‘Seinfeld’ reunion on ‘Saturday Night Live’ — but who got the most laughs out of Bernie Sanders’s debate showdown with Hillary Clinton?
Julia Louis-Dreyfus hosted the show and shared the stage with — who else? — Larry David as they took comic pot shots at both the Democratic candidates.
David mocked Sanders’s famous lack of specifics when Louis-Dreyfus was plucked from the crowd to supposedly represent an average New Yorker asking a question.
How would you break up the big banks, she asked, echoing a Clinton debate talking point.
“Once I’m elected president, I’ll have a nice shvitz in the White House gym, then I’ll go to the big banks, I’ll sit them down, and yada yada yada, they’ll be broken up,” said David, playing the part of the tousle-haired Vermont senator.he said.
“You can’t yada yada at a debate,” interjected Louis-Dreyfus. “Also, you yada yadaed over the best part.”
The show about nothing crew didn’t let Hillary off the hook either, skewering her for having an edge with wealthy voters.
Louis Dreyfus asked if wouldn’t be “bad for actors who made a lot of money on a certain sitcom” if the rich were to pay more in taxes like Sanders proposes.
“Wouldn’t it be even worse for the person who created the sitcom? Wouldn’t he lose a lot of money? Do you see what I’m saying?” she continued.
David took some time to think — then pointed at Kate McKinnon playing Hillary.
“Yeah, you better vote for her,” he cracked.
