Larry David made sure he was as “politically incorrect” as possible on SNL last night. The jokes seemed more aimed at Trump than Bernie Sanders. Based on the Titanic David accuses a child of being a midget, and when the other crews members are offended, his retort was “I can say it, it’s olden times.”
When it comes to handing out the life vests, David is upset that women and children should get them before him, stating: “Okay. I hate to pull this, but my father is rich. I come from a wealthy family. Technically, my life is worth all of yours put together.”Bernie Sanders arrives stating: “Hold on, wait a second. I am so sick of the 1% getting this preferential treatment. Enough is enough. We need to unite and work together if we’re all going to get through this.”
David retort; “sounds a lot like socialism.”
Bernie: “Democratic socialism.”
David impersonated Bernie in a sketch before the Titanic skit, in which he mocked Sanders’ lack of appeal among minority voters.
Hillary Clinton may have won the Iowa caucus by a sliver, but it looks as if Sanders beat her on SNL and will do the same in New Hampshire.
On Friday, the Red Hot Chili Peppers headlined “Feel the Bern” concert at the Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, where tickets were sold out.
Sanders has only raised $218,559 from showbiz sources, Clinton has raised $11 million. The Sanders campaign has been gathering celebrities which include “Hunger Games” Josh Hutcherson, the band Vampire Weeknd, Susan Sarandon, Seth McFarlane, Danny DeVito, Will Ferrell, Sarah Silverman, Mark Ruffalo and Adam McKay. McKay’s “The Big Short,” chronicles those investors who bet against the mortgage market in the face of Wall Street corruption and Sanders has gone out of his way to see the movie and endorse it.
