Jason Alexander, everyone’s favorite overweight, neurotic schlub from Seinfeld, George Costanza, has been making some pretty over-the-top observations about the state of America under President Trump lately. On April 2, the actor blasted the president as the “most despicable person” to ever have become president and insisted that Trump’s actions have directly resulted in the current death toll of those infected by the coronavirus.
For Hollywood, Trump’s talk of opening American businesses back up soon so that quarantine doesn’t completely derail the lives of millions amounts to him condemning Americans to death. Celebrities like Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) should be able to understand that a nine-month quarantine would harm the U.S. more than coronavirus ever could, but acknowledging that would make it harder to insinuate that the president’s a danger to “your loved ones.”

(He was in Nevada, Iowa, as well as Adel.)
Alexander insisted he wasn’t some snobby rich Hollywood guy that mangles the names of small towns, but is still "hardcore middle class":
"Seinfeld" star Jason "George Costanza" Alexander took to Twitter to write one of those typical Hollywood responds to a mass-shooting with your usual gun-control arguments. But in the middle, Alexander launched into attack on uncompromising Tea Party conservatives.
After suggesting he's received tweets from the "extreme right" with dark overtones of government control, he also suggested "these people" are okay with the government enslaving "liberals, homosexuals, and democrats" -- but not "God-fearing" militia types:
