Bernie showed off his impression of Larry (doing an impression of Bernie) during Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. “I thought it was preeetty, preeetty, preeetty good”. The line is one of the actor’s most well-known catchphrases from his HBO show, “Curb Your Enthusiasm”.
Last week, during the first Democratic debate in Las Vegas, Sanders, who is now scrapping down quite aggressively with Hillary Clinton, the only other major contender for the party nomination, said that he would vote in favor of legalizing marijuana if such an option was presented to him.
Sanders’ exchange with Kimmel was otherwise fairly serious, as he laid out his case for how to fight income equality but also weighed in on marijuana legalization and religion.
“But I am not unfavorably disposed to moving toward the legalization of marijuana”, Sanders said.
Kimmel also asked Sanders whether he believes in God. “Tell me, future boy, who’s President of the United States in 2017?” reads the caption. “What I believe in … is that we’re all in this together”, Sanders added. “We do our best as human beings – we fulfill our lives – when we work together rather than say ‘Hey, I want it all, and I don’t care about the hungry kid down the street'”. “And this is not Judaism, it’s what Pope Francis is talking about: We can not worship just the billionaires and the making of more and more money”.
