After President Donald Trump was filmed dancing around at a rally on Saturday, Seinfeld actor Jason Alexander could not help but poke fun at Trump’s awkward, jolting dance moves. He also noted the moves reminded him of someone.
A video of Trump’s dancing moves went viral and was quickly mocked on social media; numerous users drew the comparison to Elaine Benes’ moves. Alexander was among them.
“The President is apparently a fan of @OfficialJLD ‘s famous I can’t dance for shit moves. Julia was working hard to be that awful. I feel like these are his best moves,” the George Costanza actor quipped. He was commenting on the video shared by former Secretary of State John Kerry. “And you people called ME Lurch?!?” Kerry wrote Sunday.
Not long after, Louis-Dreyfus also took a shot at the “stolen” moves. “First he stole all of Veep. Now he’s stealing from Seinfeld. Melania deserves an Emmy for acting like she’s attracted to THIS,” the actress wrote on Twitter.
“Are you ready for softball questions for folks who are already voting for you?” Mikey Day asked, playing George Stephanopoulos in the spoof of Biden’s town hall. That was interrupted with Trump’s concurrent broadcast. Alec Baldwin returned to play Trump, and Kate McKinnon played “surprise badass” Savannah Guthrie.
The bit switched between the Biden and Trump broadcasts as though viewers were flipping back and forth. Biden’s included spoofs of Mr. Rogers and Bob Ross, while McKinnon’s Guthrie asked about Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis. “My doctors say my lung is beautiful,” Baldwin’s Trump said.
Watch Trump and Elaine dance, below.
