Stephen Colbert delivered an impression of Bernie Sanders that was so spot-on you would have thought Bernie was in the room. You have to love the Senator from Vermont’s passion, especially when he talks wealth inequality, but you have to admit, he sometimes comes off as the angry guy at the head of the table who isn’t pleased with how some have benefited from splitting the check for lunch:
I’m tired of the seltzer drinkers making up for…for the mimosa drinkers…and yes, I had a few pieces off the fruit plate but I was on record…as against…ordering it.”
It truly is a beautiful impression of a beautiful man. One of the things Sanders supporters love is the way he attacks an issue. His zeal is second to none; he is driven and committed. Somehow, while poking fun at his “old Jewish guy” persona, Colbert manages to maintain Sanders’ dignity. An absolutely awesome performance.
