America Finally Got An Episode Of "Bern Your Enthusiasm" On "SNL"
“I am running for president. I do not shake disgusting hands.”
Saturday Night Live gave everyone the Bernie Sanders-themed episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm they’ve been waiting for: Bern Your Enthusiasm.
Larry David's own neurotic tendencies morphed into those of presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders -- and ultimately cost him the election in the sketch.
The campaign's demise began when David -- err, Sanders -- refused to shake a woman's hand after she coughed into it.
The woman, played by Leslie Jones, isn't having it, but Sanders doesn't care.
"I am running for president. I do not shake disgusting hands."
Back at the campaign office, Mr. Hopefully President wants coffee with whole milk, but is only offered 2% milk.
Fan favorite Leon then rushes out to scold Sanders for not shaking the hand of the coughing woman — who happened to be black.
"Bernie fuckin' Sanders!" Leon shouts.
At the coffee shop, he sees a woman crash her car into a pole.
"Are you Bernie Sanders? I was just on my way to vote for you," the woman says. But then she asks him to pop her shoulder back into place so she can go vote.
In typical Larry David style, he won't do it.
Back again at campaign headquarters, sans coffee, the voting numbers are in. He lost by .2%.
"Hey you, fuckin' four eyes!" Susie shouts. "Look at the TV, you didn't win, you lost."
".2 percent? What?" Sanders asks. "How many people is that?"
