‘SNL’ Imagines How Sanders Lost Iowa

February 7, 2016 9:38 a.m.

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.
