Paid tribute to 'Saturday Night Live' impersonator
As with most prominent public figures, Dole had his own impersonator on the long-running comedy series “Saturday Night Live,” being played by Norm MacDonald.
Not long after Dole had lost the 1996 presidential election, he performed a cold opening to an episode opposite MacDonald playing the politician.
When MacDonald died from cancer in September, Dole took to Twitter to offer his condolences, posting a photo of him and the comedian sharing the SNL stage in 1996.
“[Norm MacDonald] was a great talent, and I loved laughing with him on SNL. *Bob Dole* will miss Norm Macdonald,” Dole tweeted.
