You know what I love? Whenever you see them on TV … they put the chokehold on the guy, they beat him with the baton, they put the handcuffs on him.

Face is all swollen from the beating. But that metal edge, that really hurts.

I'm surprised the man about nothing but himself even watched the show about nothing. You'd think Seinfeld would be too Jewish for him.

Or if he were to quote a Seinfeld character, it would be George.

This is a nightmare, people are getting hurt because of Trump's stupidity, yada yada yada.
