Elaine Benes met Bernie Sanders, and it went pretty much how you would think it would go.
While hosting “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, Julia Louis-Dreyfus brought back her “Seinfeld” character Elaine, who grilled Bernie Sanders — who happens to be played by “Seinfeld” creator Larry David — during a debate.
During the show’s cold open, David’s Sanders went toe-to-toe with Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton in typical fashion. Once the floor was opened to audience questions, however, Elaine took Sanders to task on how exactly he plans to break up the big banks. Sanders’ answer was surprisingly simple.
“I’ll go to the big banks, I’ll sit them down, and yada yada yada, they’ll be broken up,” he explained.
“You can’t yada yada at a debate!” Elaine replied. “Also, you yada yada’d over the best part.”
Elaine also had a question for Clinton, which may have been a little too on-the-nose for Elaine: “Doesn’t it suck to be the only girl in a group of guys? Don’t worry, because everyone thinks you are, by far, the funniest — I mean, uh, the most qualified.”
Staying on theme, Vanessa Bayer brought in another ’90s sitcom star, Jennifer Aniston’s Rachel Green from “Friends,” to ask a question. However, Elaine wasn’t done with Sanders.
“Senator Sanders, you believe that the super rich should pay more in taxes,” she said. “But wouldn’t that be bad for actors how made a lot of money on a certain very successful sitcom? Wouldn’t it be even worse for the person who created that sitcom? I mean, wouldn’t he lose a lot of money?”
