SNL Comes Back With Bits On Impeachment And 2020

SNL takes on impeachment and the 2020 Democratic Presidential race.

Saturday Night Live came back last night and, as expected, the current news was a big part of the content.

First, obviously was a cold open with Alec Baldwin back as President Trump:

Then, we got Larry David back as Bernie Sanders in a bit on the 2020 race:

All of this to start off the season, and I’m sure we’ll see more of it.

Update: And since it was mentioned in the comments, here’s Weekend Update;

    For the past 3 years, I’ve been having a very hard time distinguishing Larry David from Bernie Sanders.

    Surprisingly weak opening sketch. My guess is that they had so much raw material to work with, they couldn’t focus on any one part of it.

    @CSK: I would vote for Larry David’s Bernie Sanders.

    @Gustopher:
    He is kind of appealing, isn’t he?

    @DrDaveT:
    I was hoping for something funnier, too.

  6. @Teve:

    I’ve posted that too now.

    The John Wilkes Booth joke was great 🙂
