Jason Alexander, who played George Costanza on “Seinfeld,” told an Iowa audience he has a “man-crush” on President Barack Obama.
Alexander was speaking to Obama volunteers on Thursday, the day early voting started in Iowa, and said he had met Obama many times.
Like many in Hollywood, Alexander has been a fervent Obama supporter and has criticized the so-called “1-percent” even though he is a part of it.
“I do not want to live in that 1-percent. I don’t believe in it,” Alexander said. “I don’t think our country, or any country, runs well when the 1-percent is thriving and the rest are suffering and struggling.”
Alexander than praised Obama to NBC News, saying Obama was a man of “conviction” and “principle” before saying George, the character he played on “Seinfeld,” would “probably think he was the only savior for this entire race” and “step forward as a write-in candidate.”
