People have been saying for months how Bernie Sanders was actually Larry David in costume.
“I don’t have a Super PAC, I don’t have a backpack. I carry my stuff around loose in my arms like a professor between classes. I own one pair of underwear. That’s it! Some of these billionaires, they have three, four pairs. And I don’t have a dryer! I have to put my clothes on the radiator. So who do you want as president? One of these Washington insiders, or a guy who has one pair of clean underwear that he dries on a radiator?”
Everyone is focused on Larry David, but one of the funnier parts was Hillary Clinton. Everyone was concerned that her cameo last week was a mercy-promotion, but this week they were back to lampooning the Hillary Clinton we all know and hate. They made her shrill, calculated and well, a whole lot like Hillary Clinton.
“I think you’re really going to like the Hillary Clinton that my team and I have created for this debate. She’s warm, but strong. Flawed, but perfect. Relaxed, but racing full speed towards the white house like the T-1000 from Terminator.”
Truth is, the sketch fell a little flat because the #DemDebate was mind-numbingly boring. Now I don’t say that because I disagree with them, but because none of them ever even disagreed with each other.
Seriously, compared to the GOP Debate where the spectrum spanned from Libertarian/pro-Cannabis Rand Paul, all the way to “neocon” war-hawk Chris Christie, the lack of intellectual diversity was flat out shocking.
The biggest debate they ever had was over who had successfully garnered the lowest rating from the NRA. Yes, really.
Also, while Larry’s impression is certainly more accurate, the one below is more representative of his policies. All hail Bernie Claus!
