Earlier, speaking of the avalanche triggered by revelations about mega-producer Harvey Weinstein, David noted how uncomfortable it was that numerous accused men are Jewish, like himself. I don't like it when Jews are in the headlines for notorious reasons. "I want Einstein discovers the theory of relativity". "When I need to wash the one suit I own, I just wait until it rains, I stand outside for 15 minutes and then I jog behind a bus until the exhaust dries me off", Sanders says when asked to bid.

We don't think "The Baby Step" dance will catch on, but if you want to see some grown-ass people in diapers, click the video above. "If not for the self-deprecation and the irritable bowel syndrome, you'd never know in a million years".

Some people on Twitter didn't have the most positive reaction to David's opening statements, while others defended the host.

"I've always been obsessed with women", he said.

Commenting on whether his "obsession with women" would have held up in the Holocaust, he said: "I've often wondered that if I grew up in Poland when Hitler came to power and I was sent to a concentration camp, would I still be checking out women?"

"Hey Shlomo, look at the one by barracks 8", David continued. Oh my god is she gorgeous. I'd like to go up and say something to her.

David likely won't be winning any Emmys for hosting SNL last night, but the comedian is still going strong on HBO with season 9 of his legendary comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm, a venue where his sometimes aggressively non-PC humor manages to land with a lot more accuracy than on SNL.

David spent part of his opening monologue making Holocaust jokes that some felt were in particularly poor taste. "Nothing about the [H] olocaust will ever be amusing".

Although many Twitter users were not fans of David's bit, some defended it: "Larry David may be the most important Jewish comedian ever", user Barret tweeted.
