Last week, I wrote about a feud between Presidential hopeful (nopeful) Donald Trump, and comedian Jerry Seinfeld, ignited when the Seinfeld pulled out of a charity event due to Trump’s inflammatory remarks about President Obama’s citizenship. But can a flap like this properly be called a “feud” if only one half of its participants is actually mad? Apparently, Seinfeld isn’t so much upset by the whole thing as he is amused.
It would be reasonable for Seinfeld to be somewhat annoyed by Trump’s comments about “The Marriage Ref” (to wit: “failed show”). But in an interview yesterday with the syndicated entertainment news show “Extra,” Seinfeld told correspondent AJ Calloway, “I love Donald Trump,” adding, “All comedians love Donald Trump. If God gave comedians the power to invent people, the first person we would invent is Donald Trump.”
At least two other comedians can corroborate Seinfeld’s claim. Earlier this week, “The Daily Show” covered President Obama’s release of his long-form birth certificate, and Trump’s having taken credit for its publication. In the course of the segment, both host Jon Stewart and correspondent Jason Jones express their hope that Trump really will run for President, presumably so they don’t have to stop mocking him.
I’ll say this for Seinfeld: His whole demeanor in this clip proves the adage that living well is the best revenge. Who wouldn’t want this guy’s life? Of course he doesn’t care if Donald Trump’s angry at him. Seinfeld may be the comedian in this one-sided feud, but Trump is the clown.
