The debate: Trump vs. Bernie in Montreal

Our hilarious interview with the comics behind the viral sensation

A debate between Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders? It almost happened in the real world, but for all those hoping to see what such a confrontation would have looked like, the Trump vs. Bernie Debate Tour 2016 is here to give you a taste.

Comics Anthony Atamanuik and James Adomian debuted their impressions of the candidates earlier this year, and their series of debate specials and segments have gone viral in the United States, leading to a national tour and appearances on MSNBC and other networks.

This week they’re performing at Montreal’s Just for Laughs festival, and Ricochet caught up with the candidates for an exclusive interview, produced by AJ Korkidakis.

The Bernie vs. Trump Debate Tour 2016 wraps up its Montreal run tonight. Click here for details.
