Bernie Sanders: 'I Am Larry David'

Bernie Sanders broke down and confessed that he and Larry David are one and the same person during CNN's Democratic town hall on Wednesday night.

Okay, he was kidding – but we still have our suspicions.

CNN's Anderson Cooper asked Sanders about David's dead-on SNL impression of the Vermont senator, saying, "Larry David is hosting SNL this weekend. He does a pretty good imitation of you. Do you do a Larry David imitation?"

"Anderson, I know you've been in journalism for a long time," Sanders responded. "I am Larry David. And you didn't get it!"

Cooper also asked Sanders about his five-song folk album from the '80s, We Shall Overcome.

"If you're looking at a president who can carry a tune, I'm not your guy." Sanders said. "I hope I have other attributes, but singing is not one of them."
