‘SNL’ nails ‘Hillary’ and ‘Bernie’ in mock MSNBC forum, Larry David kills it, again

Maddow SandersThis week’s “Saturday Night Live” was supposed to be all about Trump but one of the best skits of the night happened before he took the stage.

Cecily Strong played MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in a mock version of the ridiculous Democratic forum that occurred earlier this week on the cable network. She interviewed Hillary Clinton, played by Kate McKinnon, and Bernie Sanders who was played by surprise guest Larry David.

Hillary began by gloating over her self-described epic victory, “crushing” the Benghazi hearings, and then the fun began.

“Hillary, let’s dive into some tough questions,” she asked “Clinton.” “But don’t worry, not actually tough, just MSNBC tough.”

MSNBC’s questions were so outrageously dumb that “SNL” writers had an easy job. Strong used some of the question that were actually asked by Maddow at the forum.

“What language would you most like to learn?” she asked.

“I think I’m going to say casual English. You know, there are so many phrases I hear but I don’t know how to use. Like ‘hang out’ or ‘I’m good either way,’” Clinton replied.

When David hit the stage as Sanders, he interrupted his own introduction.

“I don’t need no fancy introduction,” he yelled. “I’m not Elvis Presley. Let’s just get on with it.”

Strong asked how his fundraising efforts were “different from the other candidates in either party.”

“I only accept coins, and I’m not talking about fancy coins like dimes and quarters. I just want nickels and pennies. The coins of the middle class,” Sanders responded.

Perhaps the best line of the night came when Strong asked Sanders to pick an envelope that contained a question for him.

“The one on the far left. So far left it could never be elected,” he said.
