Larry David concentration camp joke upsets some 'SNL' viewers

I want 'Einstein discovers the theory of relativity. Salk cures polio. What I don't want: "Weinstein took it out".

"We're gonna' win this thing the dirty way, which means if I lose I'll bring everyone down with me", David's Sanders says. And I have three words to say to that: "oy vey ist mir".

His appearance was met with outrage on social media, with viewers taking to Twitter and Facebook, saying out his performance was "offensive" and made them "cringe". "That being said, I do need a new dinette set".

Additionally, the Seinfeld creator said he was always "obsessed with women, " and wondered how his relationship with girls would've been had he been raised in a Polish concentration camp.

"I think I would".

Mueller has enough evidence to charge Michael Flynn
Also part of Mueller's line of inquiry is the $530,000 Flynn received for consulting work on behalf of Turkey in the fall of 2016. Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election may be inside the White House soon.

Some fans defended David, with one tweeting, "Oh look". Oh my god is she gorgeous. The joke's premise, about a man trying to get a date with a woman in a concentration camp, was problematic to start with and David arguably didn't do himself any favors with the way he played out the routine.

"I can't pardon you now, but We're going to wait a few weeks and dress you up as a turkey and then I'll pardon you", Trump tells Manafort. You know, if they ever get out of here, I'd love to take you out for some latkes.

David is known for his uncomfortable and edgy humor, including on his hit show, Curb Your Enthusiasm. The Daily Beast commented on its "squirm-inducing nature". He then tried to imagine the conversation he'd have with a woman inside the concentration camp. "Nothing about the [H] olocaust will ever be amusing".

There was a disgusting late sketch saved somewhat by Larry David's inability to stop laughing, but I don't know if that should count as good.
