As Cruz spoke during the debate, Sanders attempted to interject, prompting a response from the Texas Republican.

“You know, as some might say, curb your enthusiasm,” Cruz quipped.


The reference to the show created and starring comedian Larry David hits particularly close to Sanders. David played Sanders on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” last year – an impersonation that earned him an Emmy nomination for outstanding guest actor in a comedy series.

“By the way, the impression Larry David does of you is spectacular and uncanny,” Cruz told Sanders. 

In a clip from the PBS series “Finding Your Roots” released earlier this month, it was revealed that David and Sanders are distant relatives.
