Aidy Bryant shared a Bernie Sanders statement talking about wealth distribution in America, Page Six reported.
“The 50 wealthiest people in America today own more wealth than the bottom half of our people,” the statement said, according to the outlet.

If anything, the stars should be glad Musk could potentially bring a new demographic to the show.
