When Julia Louis-Dreyfus hosted this week’s Saturday Night Live to promote the return of her hit HBO series “Veep,” the show found the perfect opportunity to bring back Larry David and have a mini "Seinfeld" reunion.
Fan favorite David returned to play Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in a cold open dedicated to Thursday’s Democratic presidential primary debate in Brooklyn.
“Hello, Brooklyn! I cannot wait to be your next president," said Hillary Clinton played by SNL's Kate McKinnon. "If I'm elected, of course — not getting ahead of myself ... in public. In private I’ve been president for 15 years.”
David's Sanders then told the audience: “I’m not fancy, I’m not the elite. I put on my pants just like all of you. I sit on the edge of the bed and Jane pulls them up for me.”
Questions from the viewers revealed a group of fictional New Yorkers, together with "Friends’" Rachel Green and Dreyfus’ most well-known character, Elaine Benes from “Seinfeld.”
David as Sanders evaded the question asking how he would break up big banks by saying, “Once I’m elected president, I’ll have a nice scvhitz in the White House gym, I’ll sit them down and yadda yadda yadda, they’ll be broken up.”
“Elaine” then asked “Sanders” if he thought the super rich should pay more in taxes, even those who were actors on very successful sitcoms.
The exchanges that followed between the two of them were full of inside jokes for Seinfeld fans, including a "you're bald," reference, a well-placed "Bernie's getting upset," and quite a few yada yada yadas.
In the end, David got the hint.
"You should vote for her!" he yelled, pointing to Clinton.
