Trending: Microsoft pledges to be ‘carbon negative’ by 2030, launches $1B Climate Innovation Fund

In case you missed this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live,” “Seinfeld” co-creator and “Curb Your Enthusiasm’s” Larry David dusted off his inner curmudgeon to play Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

One of the biggest focuses of the faux debate? Technology, particularly email.

David as Sanders plays the loud, cantankerous candidate who says we’re all “doomed,” and acts like a complete doofus when it comes to the Internet:

“What’s the deal with emails anyway? I forgot my password the other day, so they say, ‘We’ll email you a new one,’ but I can’t get into my email to get the password! I mean, talk about a ballbuster!”

Later in the debate, David/Sanders simply proclaims after a long rant about underwear:

Photo via check it out. It’s a mess!”

The YouTube video already has nearly 3 million views.

While watching David rant as Sanders is one of SNL’s most hilarious political turns since Tina Fey took on Sarah Palin, in reality, Sanders and his team are pretty savvy when it comes to the Internet.

According to this CNET report comparing the candidates’ websites with the help of Soasta, which rates how well companies do with web presence, Sanders’ site comes in second, after Donald Trump.

Sanders, as we all should know by now, is also quite active and candid on Twitter, especially his famous live-tweeting of that Republican debate in September, in which he simply quit out of frustration with the candidates:

You keep on being you, Bernie. And let’s hope you stick around a while. We’d love to see more of David on SNL.
