‘Saturday Night Live’: Jason Sudeikis Cameos as Joe Biden in Message from the DNC (Watch)

The Democrats are back, at least on “Saturday Night Live.”

In a Nov. 11 sketch designed as a talking head political ad from the party, Jason Sudeikis made a surprise cameo as Joe Biden, Larry David returned once again as Bernie Sanders, and Kate McKinnon slipped back into her Hillary Clinton pantsuit.

These three big players joined other “SNL” cast members, including Alex Moffat as Chuck Schumer, Leslie Jones as Donna Brazile, and Mikey Day as Tim Kaine, to declare the the Democrats won’t stop in getting another path for the country, another vision for America, because it’s their time. (“We haven’t felt this confident since the day before Trump won,” Moffat’s Schumer said.) Unfortunately, they couldn’t quite come together on a consensus for the next candidate.

McKinnon’s Clinton, of course, added that she wouldn’t stop until she got “another chance for me. Just one more chance. And then maybe another after that,” while Sudeikis’ Biden just yelled, “It’s Biden time!” and David’s Sanders said he was “still around, too.”

David also poked fun at himself in referencing the monologue he delivered when he hosted “Saturday Night Live” just last week, saying they’re not going to listen to anyone who doesn’t say what’s politically correct, “like these comics out there that think it’s OK to make jokes about concentration camps. That guy should rot in hell.”

When Moffat’s Schumer noted that they need “bold leadership” and Cecily Strong’s Dianne Feinstein added “and new blood,” the ad cut to McKinnon’s Clinton wearing a fake mustache noting she thinks “the Hillary idea could still work.” David’s Sanders wasn’t eager to give over all of his millennial voters to a new candidate either. “No, if you liked it, you should have put a ring on it. Pass,” he said.

Strong’s Feinstein noted that “together we’re going to end the spirit of divisiveness in this country,” while McKinnon, who also portrayed Nancy Pelosi in the sketch, said they learned their lesson from the last election and won’t just appeal to the coastal elite but also “mouth-breathers from Wisconsin.”

The kicker came when the message was revealed to be paid for by Mark Cuban for Republican President, though.

Watch the sketch below:

“Saturday Night Live” is on live coast-to-coast Saturdays at 11:30 pm ET / 8:30 pm PT on NBC.
