In light of the results of last week's election, which saw some major gains by Democrats in battleground states, many felt like it was a clear message to Donald Trump and Republicans that the Democrats were doing something right.
So, leave it to Saturday Night Live to cast some severe shade across that celebration by trolling the established Democratic leaders for continuing to believe they're the future of the party and the reason Democrats captured wins last Tuesday.
In an epic troll, SNL produced a fake ad which saw the likes of Nancy Pelosi (Kate McKinnon), Dianne Feinstein (Cecily Strong), Chuck Schumer (Alex Moffat), a Spanish-speaking Tim Kaine (Mikey Day) spouting out their typical talking points, along with some surprise guest appearances by McKinnon as Hillary Clinton, Jason Sudeikis as Joe Biden, and even Larry David as Bernie Sanders.
Then of course there's Donna Brazile (Leslie Jones), who's not having any of it.

Everyone in the skit shares the same stiff delivery that sounds only slightly like excitement, as Feinstein says "We're back, baby."
"You love our fresh new ideas delivered by fresh new faces by people like me, Nancy Pelosi," says McKinnon with no hint of life behind her eyes, her face barely moving.
But these Democrats are thinking about the upcoming elections as well, with Pelosi admitting, "We learned our lesson from the last election. We can't just appeal to coastal elites. We need mouth breathers from Wisconsin."
"And window lickers from Ohio as well," Feinstein adds.
At one point, Clinton asks to be given "just one more chance. And maybe one more after that." Brazile responds: "I thought she was dead."
By the end, the group declares in an "energetic" unison: "The Dems are back," after which a pissed Brazile waltzes out and says: "I will destroy all of this."
