Bernie Bits: Larry David Returns to 'SNL' As Bernie Sanders

Posted By on Sun, Nov 8, 2015 at 10:27 PM

Donald Trump may have hosted this week's "Saturday Night Live" episode, but Bernie Sanders stole the show. Or, at least, Larry David did.

The "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star returned to SNL to parody Friday's Democratic candidates forum in South Carolina. As he did three weeks ago, David played an irascible, slightly unhinged Sanders — and, of course, he nailed it. 

As of this writing, Sanders' presidential campaign hadn't yet sent a fundraising solicitation asking for "vacuum pennies," but we're confident it will soon.

Watch the sketch below (and skip ahead to 4:04 if even a parody of former Maryland governor Martin O'Malley bores you):
