Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney referenced a popular “Seinfeld” character during Wednesday night’s debate, notes Politico. When the audience began clapping during his introduction, Romney quipped, “As George Costanza would say: when they’re applauding, stop.”
Actor Jason Alexander, who played Costanza on the show, tweeted a few hours later: “Thrilled Gov. Romney enjoys my old character. I enjoyed the character he used 2 b 2. If he’d embrace that again, he’d b a great candidate.”
Side note: Romney actually botched the quote, which technically belongs to Jerry Seinfeld, according to BuzzFeed.
