In the sketch, Sanders and Clinton decide to play nice, have a beer and accept Clinton's almost inevitable nomination — but that doesn't stop each of them from throwing shots and commenting on the general apathy of this election cycle.

David-as-Sanders takes a shot at Clinton's establishment politician image, asking for a beer that's "a new brand that people are flocking to."

He's not wrong; Sanders has had an edge over Clinton when it comes to millennials

The frenemies also touched on the "rigged" electoral process, commenting on how even though Sanders keeps beating Clinton in primaries, it's still not enough.

In the end, the two unite in a dance number — although Clinton says she'll never let Sanders lead.
