Limbaugh: ‘Jerry Seinfeld Is Being Treated as Though He’s a Republican’

Rush Limbaugh briefly addressed the Jerry Seinfeld diversity controversy Thursday, saying the comedian is getting so much flak in the media for his remarks, you’d almost think he was a Republican. Seinfeld, you’ll recall, got in trouble after he said that the diversity question about comedy bothers him because it’s “anti-comedy” to force quotas and examine diversity rather than keep things as simple as who’s funny and who’s not.

And with all the blowback Seinfeld’s gotten in the media, Limbaugh couldn’t help but think Seinfeld’s getting the same kind of treatment as another enemy of the media.

‘The PC crowd’s accusing him of not having any diversity in his show, and he’s telling them to go to hell. He’s being treated like a Republican.’
