Larry David, the comedian and co-creator of Seinfeld, has openly expressed his disdain for former President Donald Trump, calling him a “little baby” who “knows he lost” the 2020 presidential election but refuses to admit it. In a recent interview with CNN’s Chris Wallace, David accused Trump of destroying democracy by not accepting the election results and claimed the former president is a “sociopath” for his behavior. The comedian stated that he thinks about the political fallout from the 2020 election on a daily basis and believes Trump has deceived his supporters into thinking he did not lose. Despite his strong feelings, David maintained a deadpan demeanor, claiming that the situation has not impacted him personally.

David’s criticism of Trump is not new, as the topic has made its way into his hit show, Curb Your Enthusiasm. In a memorable Season 10 debut in 2020, David is seen wearing a “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) hat as a tactic to repel unwanted social encounters in liberal Los Angeles. Trump himself shared a video clip of the episode on Twitter, unaware that he was being mocked, according to show producer Jeff Schaffer. The MAGA movement’s followers have also targeted David, with Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia criticizing the show for painting conservatives and Trump supporters in a negative light, referring to them as racists and rednecks. Greene expressed frustration with Hollywood elites and their influence on Georgia, accusing them of trying to turn the state blue.

The current season of Curb Your Enthusiasm features a plotline involving David getting arrested and charged with a crime after offering water to a woman waiting in line to vote in Georgia, a reference to a real law passed by Peach State lawmakers after Trump’s loss. David has been vocal about the impact of the election aftermath on him, calling Trump’s refusal to accept defeat as throwing “250 years of democracy out the window.” Despite Trump’s false claims of election fraud and attempts to undermine the democratic process, David remains unwavering in his criticism of the former president and his administration.

David’s mockery of Trump has garnered attention, with many praising the comedian for his bold statements and criticism of the former president’s actions post-election. While Trump and his supporters have targeted David for his views, the comedian continues to stand by his beliefs and speak out against what he sees as a threat to democracy. The ongoing conflict between David and Trump exemplifies the divided political landscape in the United States, highlighting the importance of speaking out against authoritarian behavior and defending democratic principles. In a time of heightened political tensions, voices like David’s serve as a reminder of the importance of holding leaders accountable for their actions.
