Jason Alexander Hilariously Mocks Ted Cruz with Famous Seinfeld Line

It’s no secret to anyone around Washington DC that Senator Ted Cruz loves to make pop culture references. The makers of the shows he loves, however, don’t seem to love Ted Cruz back.

Last February, Simpsons showrunner, Al Jean, ripped into the senator for suggesting his characters were Republicans. Cruz recently made a Seinfeld reference in an effort to mock Colorado Senator, Michael Bennet. Today, Seinfeld star, Jason Alexander, replied to to Cruz and mocked him with a famous line from the show.  Alexander is known for his role as George Costanza in the 1990s sitcom.

The spat started when Cruz tweeted, “Michael Bennet’s campaign is a Seinfeld campaign—about nothing—that typifies the Left’s empty rage in 2020. In a decade in the Senate, he’s done very little…but he did stomp his foot & yell at me on Senate floor (which he features in fundraising emails).”

Bennet replied with a GIF of Seinfeld neighbor, Newman. Newman, played by Wayne Knight, was the chief antagonist on the show.

Then, Alexander stepped in to defend Bennet and slam Cruz. The actor wrote, “So Ted Cruz has called Michael Bennet a “Seinfeld campaign”, claiming it’s about nothing. 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.”

This is Cruz’s second story involving Hollywood in the past few days. Over the weekend he defended conservative actor James Woods and called on Twitter founder, Jack Dorsey, to ban comedian Jim Carrey for his artwork which depicts prominent conservatives.
