Great news, Bernie Sanders, you're the Democratic frontrunner! Bad news, Bernie Sanders, you're the Democratic frontrunner!

Sanders has got to have mixed feelings about leading the pack for the Democratic presidential nomination since the distinction comes with increased scrutiny from America's late-night comics.

Seth Meyers points out that Sanders had the Democratic establishment freaking out. Stephen Colbert rips Sander's praise of former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro and Jimmy Kimmel suggests the ideal running mate who won't "threaten (Sanders') ideology." 

Jimmy Kimmel shared an update on his son Friday.
