WATCH: Bernie Sanders' Hilarious Cameo on SNL With Larry David

Bernie Sanders' much-anticipated cameo on Saturday Night Live along-side host Larry David did not disappoint.


While David did do an outstanding Bernie Sanders sketch the two only appeared together in one bit, where a Titanic-like ship is sinking and a petulant oligarch played by Larry David is trying to cut in line only to be confronted by a populist, poor Bernie Sanders.

Sanders plays an immigrant Bernie Sanderswitzki who will change his name upon arriving in New York so "it doesn't sound quite so Jewish," to which David rolls his eyes and quips, "Oh, that'll fool them." 

It's a pretty hilarious send-up on both inequality and Sanders' campaign persona.
