Larry David And Bernie Sanders Shocked To Find Out They’re Related On ‘Finding Your Roots’

  Larry David And Bernie Sanders Shocked To Find Out They’re Related On ‘Finding Your Roots’ When Larry David debuted his Bernie Sanders impersonation on Saturday Night Live, the similarities were uncanny. Interviewing David and Sanders separately in the video below, Finding Your Roots host Henry Louis Gates, Jr. explained to them that they match guests’ DNA with other guests who have appeared on the show and if there are long identical stretches, that indicates their cousins. In front of each of them was a book that would reveal who their cousin was.

A spokesperson for the Women ’ s Convention could not be reached for comment. But in an interview with USA Today on Wednesday, Tamika Mallory, the co-founder of the the Women ’ s March, said Sanders ’s appearance would resonate with young activists.

Planned Sanders appearance at women’s convention draws fire © Provided by The Hill Planned Sanders appearance at women’s convention draws fire The announcement that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will headline an event at a women's conference in Detroit later this month has left some Democrats seething and reliving old wounds from the 2016 presidential race.

On Thursday, the Women's Convention-the same group that organized the large Women's March earlier this year a day after President Trump was sworn into office-announced that Sanders will address 3,000 women activists on the opening day of the conference.

The announcement did not receive a warm reception.

"What, all the women were busy?" Democratic strategist Christy Setzer said in an email to The Hill. "While Sanders undeniably still has an audience and a following, giving him the keynote at the women's march feels at best tonally off and to some like rubbing salt in the wounds."

The news lit up Twitter, with everyone from MSNBC's Joy Reid to actress Debra Messing weighing in, all questioning the rationale of the invitation.

The Center for American Progress's Neera Tanden called it "pretty amazing" and said she was unfollowing the organization.

"This announcement sends the wrong message to women everywhere," EMILY's List President Stephanie Schriock said in a statement. "We have reached out to the organizers of the Women's Convention directly to share our surprise and disappointment, and to offer our help to strengthen the program."

Supporters and former aides to former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton were particularly confused by the news. The 2016 Democratic primary, which pitted Clinton against Sanders, was contentious.

The timing of the speech comes on the heels of Clinton's new book "What Happened," in which she blamed Sanders for "paving the way" for her rival Donald Trump to make the case that she was-as Trump calls her-"Crooked Hillary."

"His attacks caused lasting damage," Clinton wrote of Sanders.

"It's rankling some folks that the guy they asked to speak on the first day is the guy who did some real damage to a female presidential candidate," said Jim Manley, who served as a Clinton surrogate during the 2016 race.

"The irony," one former Clinton aide added. "They couldn't have put less thought into this if they tried. It's completely insulting."

A spokesperson for the Women's Convention could not be reached for comment. But in an interview with USA Today on Wednesday, Tamika Mallory, the co-founder of the the Women's March, said Sanders's appearance would resonate with young activists.

Bernie Sanders bows out of Women's Convention to visit to Puerto Rico

  Bernie Sanders bows out of Women's Convention to visit to Puerto Rico Sen. Bernie Sanders announced Thursday he will visit Puerto Rico in wake of Hurricane Maria, bowing out of his previously scheduled speaking gig at the Women's Convention next week. "I want to apologize to the organizers of the Women's Convention for not being able to attend your conference next Friday in Detroit," the Vermont lawmaker said in a statement. "Given the emergency situation in Puerto Rico, I will be traveling there to visit with San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz and other officials to determine the best way forward to deal with the devastation the island is experiencing.

"I think that right now, no one can deny that Bernie Sanders is probably one of the most powerful U.S. senators...on progressive issues, women's issues, mobilizing millennials. He is really in line with the principles of the Women's March," Mallory said.

A spokesman for Sanders also could not be reached for comment.

However, a Sanders ally told The Hill that it makes sense for Sanders to be part of the program.

"He's a validator, he's not the leader of the movement obviously," the Sanders ally said. "I don't think every single person who speaks there needs to be a woman."

The ally said Sanders' inclusion showed movement unity.

"He's there to be supportive," the ally continued. "If the goal is to build the women's movement in helping to lead and transform the country, why wouldn't you have allies there? He was invited to show that we're all united. He certainly did not go seeking an invitation."

Sanders allies have indicated that the senator already has his sights set on a 2020 run. And the senator has criss-crossed the country recently, stopping in key states like Iowa and holding campaign-style rallies in states like West Virginia and Kentucky.

But other women-particularly colleagues of Sanders'-have also been mentioned as potential candidates. In the Senate, Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) have all made 2020 lists.

"It does seem a little odd since there are so many rising stars in the party that happen to be women," Manley said, criticism EMILY's List also raised.
