Hillary Waltzes Bernie Away In SNL Cold Open

One of the few pleasures of the 2016 election season has been Larry David’s impersonation of Bernie Sanders on Saturday Night Live. Since the show won’t be back until fall, when the primaries will finally have come to a close, Saturday may have been his last appearance. And he went out with a bang, meeting Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton at a bar at the Biltmore—it’s closing time but he refuses to leave—and trading secrets with his rival. The standout moment is Hillary offering him a choice position in her administration: the Senator from Vermont. So far, so typical for SNL. But then the sketch unexpectedly turns into a fantasia, set to the “Waltz of the Flowers” from The Nutcracker.
