In a surprise twist, Bernie Sanders is reportedly set this weekend to deliver a speech of his own before a wealthy, mostly-white New York City organization: Saturday Night Live, with host Larry David.

If anyone asks how I died, tell them it was suffocating under all the “pretty pretty pretty good” jokes I’m going to have to read on Sunday.
