The season debut featured cracks about Harvey Weinstein, sexual harassment, electric scooters, selfie sticks and President Donald Trump. The part that stuck out most to folks on social media was David donning one of Trump’s signature red “Make America Great Again” caps ― but it wasn’t exactly an endorsement.
David discovered that wearing a MAGA hat was a “great people repellent,” allowing him to avoid talking to others:

Larry David can make anyone laugh without having to be overly virtuous, partisan, innacurate or censorious.

This episode was a master class in political humor. Not preachy or accusatory, but hilarious fun that both sides should be able to laugh at. I know I did. #CurbYourEnthusiasm pic.twitter.com/Jpz6y28B5i— 💔SUPERDIVORCE💔TALKIN BOUT COMIC BOOKS💔 (@superdivorce) January 20, 2020
