Larry David is feeling the Bern!

The 68-year-old actor returned to host another episode of Saturday Night Live, which happened to land on the same night as a Republican debate in New Hampshire.

David pulled out all the stops, poking fun at the upcoming election with the help of Democratic presidential hopeful, Bernie Sanders.

The standout sketch of the night was "Steam Ship," in which a politically incorrect character, played by David, chats it up with Sanders on a sinking ship. David's character calls out a fellow passenger, arguing that women and children shouldn't be the first to get off the boat. Rather, it should just be "whoever's closest."

"I come from a wealthy family," David boasts. "Technically, my life is worth all of yours put together -- especially these women and midgets!"

Sanders chimes in, saying, "I am so sick of the 1% getting this preferential treatment. Enough is enough! We need to reunite and work together."

Sanders then mocks Republican candidate Donald Trump with a few "huge" jokes.

The bar was set low for David's SNL hosting gig, but the episode turned out funnier than most expected. Here are three must-see moments from the episode:

Jon Rudnitsky Auditions for Dirty Dancing
The SNL cast member channeled his best Patrick Swayze with a hilarious rendition of the late actor's famous dance sequence to "I've Had the Time of My Life." Rudnitsky hoped to score a part in the Dirty Dancing: Live! remake "starring Channing Tatum" with what he called "a brand new take on it."

Hansel and Derek Zoolander Have a Passion For Political Fashion
Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller made cameos as their Zoolander 2 characters, commenting on the style trends of the presidential candidates. The standout joke was when they discussed Trump's new look, Second Place. Nothing will ever live up to the original Blue Steel, however.

The 1975 Perform Ahead of Second LP Release
They didn't take part in a sketch, but The 1975 still ruled New York City as SNL's musical performers on Saturday. The pop-rock band performed two songs off their latest upcoming LP, I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It, due out Feb. 26. Hear them perform "The Sound" and "Love Me" in the video below.
