Larry David, the Bernie Sanders doppelganger who often portrays the presidential candidate in skits on "Saturday Night Live", says the senator from Vermont should drop out of the race for the Democratic nomination for president and throw his support behind Joe Biden.

"If Almighty Lord came down and said you are president tomorrow, write down your cabinet in the next 15 minutes, I think I could do it", said Biden.

"I was apologizing to him by saying, 'Bernie, I don't want to in any way to demean your effort but if we don't start now, we're not going to be able to get there, '" Biden continued.


When it comes to the daytime talk showThe View, the circle of ladies is known for brazenly speaking their minds; but after senior host, Whoopi Goldberg, interviewed Bernie Sanders, many fans of the hit show were calling foul. David spoke back to President Donald Trump retweeting a clip from his display in February and stating "Tough Guys for Trump!" and relayed his perspectives on a Hulu documentary about former Trump and Sanders rival Hillary Clinton.

Sanders now trails behind Biden in the Democratic presidential primary with 914 pledged delegates versus Biden's 1,217. "But you see her in this documentary and you love her". "I didn't want to see them attack and those people were just so insane, I couldn't watch it".

Biden has said previously that his staff has been in touch with Sanders' team, and in an interview with MSNBC's Brian Williams on Tuesday said that "there ought to be a way we could accommodate his concerns on other matters in terms of everything from people being engaged, to his organization".


Sanders said, "I don't accept that characterization".

In an April 1 exchange with Whoopi Goldberg on The viewSanders answered questions about why he's still in the race. And right now, in this unprecedented moment in American history, I think we need to have a very serious discussion at how we need to go forward. "I'm not holding a rally in Wisconsin because of the nature of campaigns right now".

Sanders urged Congress on Friday to suspend monthly expenses, including rent, mortgage payments, medical debt and consumer debt collection, for four months, as part of a list of priorities he believes legislators should include in the next stimulus bill.
