“What do you think is in Bernie Sanders’ e-mails? A bunch of soup coupons?” asked Che.
Jost and Che pressed supporters on controversial topics, including whether or not they thought Hillary Clinton would spoil “Game of Thrones” or what exactly is the “common man.” But mostly they pointed out the plethora of outfit choices that unify Sanders fans.

“Yeah, show the clip of all the Bernie supporters we’ve seen,” said Che.
Jost and Che were also present at the DNC in Cleveland last week, where they hosted a special edition of “Weekend Update” featuring Kate McKinnon as Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
