Bernie Sanders is riding the Larry David wave this weekend, appearing with the comedian on "Saturday Night Live" just days before the New Hampshire primary. Sanders is relating to David's spot-on impression of him so much that he's using a David's photo as his Twitter avatar.

Sanders acted in two skits with David, including one titled "Bern Your Enthusiasm" that spoofed David's own show "Curb Your Enthusiasm." In another, the candidate was promoting his "Bernie Sanders Whiskey." Sanders even joined David on stage to intro the musical guest, 1975.

While NBC hasn't yet posted clips for online, you can get a glimpse of the presidential candidate's comic acting skills through tweets.
