The Random Reason Jerry Seinfeld Doesn’t Do Trump Jokes

Published

on

During a recent interview with David Letterman, comedian Jerry Seinfeld explained that he had no interest at all in doing jokes about current U.S. President, Donald Trump. While traditionally not a champion of being politically correct, Seinfeld has also kept his personal political views notoriously private. Here you’ll discover the artful explanation behind why Seinfeld doesn’t do Trump jokes.

The Age Of Trump Jokes

It should come as no surprise that being elected President of the United States comes with the price tag of being the butt of numerous jokes. President Trump has proven to be no exception. Since taking office, Trump has been regularly roasted by late-night comedians, such as Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel.

Letterman And Seinfeld Talk Comedy

Most recently, comedian Michelle Wolf drew press for her Trump-joke heavy performance at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. David Letterman touched briefly on Wolf’s performance with Jerry Seinfeld during the taping of an upcoming episode of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction on Netflix. “I really had great admiration for the fact that [Wolf] was able to just walk into that room and decimate the place,” Letterman remarked. Seinfeld did not respond quite as enthusiastically.

Seinfeld Shies Away From Politics

Seinfeld merely responded with a few vague compliments towards Wolf, adding that he did not really know her. When Letterman asked him if he too performed Trump jokes, the Seinfeld star said he had no interest. Though Letterman is an outspoken liberal, Seinfeld has traditionally kept his comedy aggressively apolitical.

Comedian Says Colleges Too P.C.

Ironically, the comedian once commented that he tended to shy away from playing college campuses, specifically because they tend to be very politically correct. While on The Herd with Colin Cowherd, Seinfeld remarked, “I don’t play colleges, but I hear a lot of people telling me, ‘Don’t go near colleges. They’re so PC.’” He also added that he feels many college kids don’t understand the nature of politically-correct terms. “They just want to use these words: ‘That’s racist’ ‘That’s sexist’ ‘That’s prejudice’,” he explained. “They don’t know what the hell they’re talking about.” So, why is it that Seinfeld himself is loath to go for Trump jokes?

A Classic Seinfeld Explanation

When the subject of Trump jokes came up, Seinfeld responded as perhaps only he could. Rather than tie his answer back to his own political views, he simply explained that he’d rather talk about raisins. “I just think that it’s interesting that after 80 years, Sun-Maid finally went, ‘Hey, why don’t we put some chocolate on it?’ Imagine not thinking of that for 80 years. So that really gets me excited, that people pay me to talk about those kinds of things,” Seinfeld explained, continuing to artfully steer the conversation away from politics.
