White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders got the “Saturday Night Live” treatment on a recent episode hosted by “Curb Your Enthusiasm’s” Larry David.

“In a minute, I’m gonna tell you guys a six-minute riddle about taxes,” Bryant says early on in the sketch. “But first, I’m gonna take some questions.”
“History is a bottle of moments that is filled with time and horses and the invention of the telephone,” she later said in response to a question about General John Kelly’s recent claim that the Civil War happened because of a lack of compromise. “If you don’t like that, you’ve gotta take it up with Father Time.”
