Bernie vs. The President

The commander-in-chief gets a surprise visit from an old pal.

As he consistently informs the nation, the president has the best of everything. He gets the best intelligence. He has the best buildings that prominently display his name. And when it comes to political rivals who are also his closest friends, his are the absolute best.

Just see what happens when the president’s best-friend-slash-ideological-opponent Bernie Sanders (played by James Adomian) stops by. In a segment called Counterpoint/Excuse Me!, the two men spar over issues from the FBI director’s firing to Russian leaks to how classy the White House is.
Unsurprisingly, the president is the decisive winner of this exchange. But what’s most impressive is that he’s able to maintain close friendships even with people on the other side of the aisle.

Thank you, Mr. President and Bernie, for elevating the national discourse, and for raising awareness of vision issues that often plague older Americans.
