Larry David, Maya Rudolph Shine as Sanders, Harris in 'SNL' Democratic Town Hall Sketch
After a cold open dealing with Trump impeachment proceedings, the season premiere of NBC's Saturday Night Live offered another sketch featuring the Democratic candidates for president doing a town hall about impeachment.
Larry David returned to the show with a cameo as Bernie Sanders, and former castmember Maya Rudolph played Kamala Harris. "I’m America’s cool aunt, a fun aunt, I call that a 'funt,'" Rudolph’s Harris said. "The kind of funt that will give you weed, but then arrest you for that weed." She also plugged fake television shows, including Kamala on TNT.
SNL's Alex Moffat played Beto O’Rourke, new castmember Bowen Yang played Andrew Yang, Chris Redd played Cory Booker, "Weekend Update" host Colin Jost made a rare sketch appearance as Pete Buttigieg, and new castmember Chloe Fineman played Marianne Williamson, who joined the town hall via astral projection. "I will trap his soul inside this crystal, which I should note is also a yoni egg," she said of President Trump.
The installment’s host, Woody Harrelson, played Joe Biden. "Daddy’s here, America," he said. "I see you, I hear you, I sniff you, and I hug you from behind."
Kate McKinnon brought back her Elizabeth Warren impression. "I hope you all enjoyed hot girl summer, because it’s school librarian fall," she said.
"Free college, free healthcare, free refills on any medium-sized soft drink," David’s Sanders said in closing remarks.
