The best stuff Saturday Night Live (SNL) does now seems to be politics. Whether it’s cast members portraying politicians or having politicians make cameos, the show makes the most it. The 2016 presidential race is full of characters. SNL has taken full advantage of this. Back in October, Larry David portrayed Bernie Sanders on the show. It was hit. With Larry David as last night’s host and Bernie Sanders confirmed to make an appearance, it wasn’t hard to figure out that there would be some SNL magic.
The SNL magic this time was in the form of Bern Your Enthusiasm. If you’re a fan of Larry’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, it is well worth the watch.
The brilliant part of SNL’s treatment is that it brings some levity to all the crazy of the presidential race.
