NEW YORK (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has made a cameo appearance on “Saturday Night Live” with Larry David, the comic who has done a dead-on impersonation of him.

But “SNL” resisted the temptation to have the Vermont senator appear next to David as he was playing him. Sanders portrayed a passenger on an endangered ship who argued with David about who should be allowed on a lifeboat.

David said he should be on the lifeboat because he was richer than everybody else. Sanders appeared and said he was sick of the 1 percent getting all of the advantages.

David replied: “Sounds like socialism to me.”
