Comedy Central’s new youtube video pits Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders against each other in a debate that will have you rolling on the floor laughing. Comedy Central enlisted Anthony Atamanuik to play Donald Trump, he’s known for appearances in 30 Rock and a few Funny or Die skits. James Adomian plays Senator Sanders, Adomian recently released a full-length comedy album entitled Low Hangin Fruit.
The debate marked the first of the Comedy Central @midnight debates and was moderated by Chris Hardwick who you might recognize from Talking Dead which is talk show that airs after The Walking Dead. The debate was a sort of hype-up for their next debate which will air April 27th on Fusion. Atamanuik and Adomian are also touring as Sanders and Trump, they have debates scheduled in Charlotte, Boston and Brooklyn as of right now.
The Comedy Central piece comes out of the gate with rollicking laughs, Trump says that he’d like to waterboard the crowd and Sanders announces that he’s received endorsements from one half of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, which he reminds is us two thirds of Crosby, Stills & Nash. He also brags about winning 88% of the vote among voters living in households where the primary mode of transportation is a bycicle. Trump proclaims that “‘Gina is our enemy”. He also described Jeb Bush of “the Terry Shiavo of the presidential candidates.”
