The cast of SNL parodied the Democratic candidates in their opening skit over the weekend. While the show typically goes easy on Democrats, they went for the jugular this time. As the old saying goes, “there is a grain of truth in every joke.” The truths that this skit points out highlight many of the major weaknesses in the Democratic field of candidates.
The parody kicked off with an announcer stating, “Let’s meet our future MSNBC contributors.” Jason Sudeikis, playing the role of Biden, said, “Joe Biden is going to do what Joe Biden does the best, creep up from behind. Just when you think your lead is safe, my numbers are going to come up and surprise you with a nice, sweet kiss on the neck.”
The live audience erupted when the Saturday Night Live cast members pointed out that Bernie Sanders has spent over one million dollars flying on private jets. Larry David, portraying Sanders, said he likes to fly privately to avoid annoying the flying public with his loud chewing and frequent trips to the bathroom.
