Larry David hosted Saturday Night Live along with a guest appearance from Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders over the weekend - and they’ve both got that “lovable grumpy old Jewish guy” thing going for them, so this “Curb Your Enthusiasm” parody was pretty much inevitable.
In a sketch that Sanders supporters would like to emphasize is NOT what Bernie is like in real life because Bernie is AWESOME, David portrays the candidate as a well-intentioned grump who keeps finding ways to annoy voters, like refusing to shake a woman’s hand after she coughs into it.
“I’m not being rude!” he rants in a spot-on Brooklyn accent. “She’s the one who’s being rude by offering me a germ-infested hand!”
No wonder he lost in Iowa by 0.2% or whatever it was.
