Comedian Larry David reprised his role as the grouchy version of Sen. Bernie Sanders on this weekend's Saturday Night Live in a riff on the HBO comedy, Curb Your Enthusiasm.

If you've never watched the series on HBO, Larry David's character always manages to do something to infuriate everyone around him without meaning to and generally ends up, just like this SNL skit, getting the short end of the stick and with people hammering him for what he believes is innocuous or completely justified behavior.

"Bern Your Enthusiasm" imagines what would happen if Bernie Sanders morphed into the Larry David character during the run up to the Iowa caucuses, and if you were a fan of the show, you'll probably find it as laugh out loud funny as I did.

Here's more from TPM: 'SNL' Imagines How Sanders Lost Iowa:

NBC comedy show "Saturday Night Live" imagined how Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) lost the Iowa caucus.

"SNL" host Larry David recreated his show, "Curb your enthusiasm" to "Bern your enthusiasm" to imagine what happened. It all started when David, as Sanders, refused to shake hands with a woman at a campaign rally after she coughed.

David said he was running for President and wouldn't shake "disgusting hands."

"She didn't have the decency to give me a wipe," David said, recounting the story to a supposed Sanders campaign staffer. "She gave me a cough and a shake."

David, as Sanders, also refused to pop a woman's shoulder back in its socket after she got in a car accident on the way to vote for him.

David returned to campaign headquarters to watch the Iowa caucus results roll in, only to see them all wearing rival Hillary Clinton gear.
