‘Seinfeld’ Actor Jason Alexander Hits Ted Cruz With Brilliant ‘George Costanza’-Inspired Insult
Actor Jason Alexander tore into Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) this week after the Texas Republican said Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet’s (D-Colo.) newly announced presidential campaign was a “Seinfeld campaign” because it’s “about nothing.”
“So @SenTedCruz has called @SenatorBennet a ‘Seinfeld campaign’, claiming it’s about nothing,” Alexander, who portrayed George Costanza on the hit 1990s sitcom, said in a tweet on Monday night.
“I’ve met Bennett. He is a great man and real choice for POTUS. As for Cruz – the jerk store called and they’re running out of you. I say, the faster the better,” he continued, making a reference to a joke used on the popular show.
The actor’s comments come in response to a tweet Cruz shared attacking Bennett last week, in which he said: “Michael Bennet’s campaign is a Seinfeld campaign—about nothing—that typifies the Left’s empty rage in 2020.”
