‘Saturday Night Live’ Spoofs Democratic Debate With Maya Rudolph, Jason Sudeikis Cameos
Before Eddie Murphy took the stage tonight on Saturday Night Live with his highly anticipated monologue, the show kicked things off with a cold open spoofing Thursday night’s Democratic debate.
The sketch made fun of the debate’s lack of diversity with celebrity cameos, a rapping and dancing Kamala Harris played by Maya Rudolph, and a dose of mockery targeting Michael Bloomberg’s bank account.
Heidi Gardner started things off with an impression of PBS anchor Judy Woodruff.
As for the candidates, Colin Jost brought back his Pete Buttigieg impression and warned he would be in “attack mode.”
Larry David revived his Bernie Sanders impression and seemingly apologized for his race.”I’m Bernie Sanders. I’m white, can’t help it,” David said.

SNL alum Rachel Dratch returned to play Amy Klobuchar, Jason Sudeikis dropped in to play former Vice President Joe Biden, Bowen Yang portrayed Andrew Yang, and Kate McKinnon brought back her impression of Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
“My safe word is PBS,” McKinnon said.
As the candidates tried to the get in their talking points, they were repeatedly interrupted by Alec Baldwin’s President Trump, and Fred Armisen as Michael Bloomberg.
In real life, Bloomberg didn’t qualify for the debate, prompted the people in the SNL skit to ask Armisen what he was doing there.
“Well for 30 million dollars, PBS is now owned by viewers like me,” Armisen said, as he held up a tote bag with a PBS logo.
Also crashing the debate was Maya Rudolph who reprised her impression of Sen. Kamala Harris, who recently dropped out of the presidential race.
“Look, I’ll still beat Trump, because when he gets to the Senate Judiciary Committee he’ll wish he never heard my name,” Rudolph said.
Not one to miss a good time, Rudolph’s Harris, sipped on a drink, fired off a hip hop verse and danced.
As mentioned earlier, Eddie Murphy hosted and Lizzo served as musical guest.
