US Democratic senator and presidential candidate in the 2020 US elections, Bernie Sanders, appeared in a video interview titled “Bernie vs. Bernie” with his well-known comedian impersonator James Adomian.
"What I said to myself, was, 'we don't get a fair shot in the mainstream media, so I said, what the heck, what the hay, I would interview myself'. So here we are", said the impersonator at the beginning of the interview.

The 8-minute interview, filmed before Wednesday's Democratic debate in Atlanta and posted to YouTube on Thursday by Adomian, showed the two versions of Sanders dressed the same way and seated next to each other while humorously discussing a variety of topics related to the presidential hopeful’s electoral campaign, including the real Sanders' guarantees of free education, health care, and jobs.
During the interview, Adomian imitated the voice and gestures of Senator Sanders.
“Your shoes are polished. You are trying to look like me", said Sanders, accusing his doppelganger of not following his “rumpled” fashion style.
“I agree with you on this. I don’t agree with myself on everything", Adomian responded.
The comedian, who became famous during the 2016 presidential elections while impersonating Sanders, later on Thursday tweeted a fragment of the video, tagging the Senator. Sanders retweeted the video with the comment: “It was an honour to talk to myself”.
