When it comes to softball questions Bernie Sanders has had his fill from cable and network hosts alike but they’d all be hard-pressed to top Comedy Central’s Larry Wilmore’s slow-pitch to the socialist senator when he asked: “Are you Jesus?” 



Appearing on the April 13 edition of The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, Sanders was greeted with a friendly sitdown that included the following exchange:

SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Well, I used to help out in...

WILMORE: Help out a carpenter?

SANDERS: I wouldn’t want to go too far on that.

SANDERS: Right.        

WILMORE: Millions of people come to hear you speak your sermons on mounts. Are you Jesus?”
