• Jerry Seinfeld Gets Seth Meyers to Take Back His PC Defense of Bruce Jenner

    Jerry Seinfeld has been on a tear recently railing against the rising tide of what he calls a politically correct culture that has become way too sensitive.

    “I don’t play colleges but I hear a lot of people tell me, ‘Don’t go near colleges, they’re so pc,’” Jerry Seinfeld recently said in an appearance on ESPN Radio’s The Herd with Colin Cowherd. “My daughter’s 14. My wife says to her, ‘Well, you know, in the next couple of years, I think maybe you’re going to want to hang around the city more on the weekends so you can see boys.’ You know, my daughter says, ‘That’s sexist.’ They just want to use these words. ‘That’s racist. That’s sexist. That’s prejudice.’ They don’t even know what they’re talking about.”

    Seinfeld continued to hammer the politically correct police Tuesday night on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

    There are a lot of people who “let you know you went over the line” Myers said to Seinfeld.

    “And they keep moving the lines in, for no reason,” Seinfeld responded.

    “I could imagine a time where people say, ‘Well, that’s offensive to suggest that a gay person moves their hands in a flourishing motion and you now need to apologize.’ I mean, there’s a creepy PC thing out there that really bothers me,” Seinfeld said.

    Late Night panelist and New Yorker editor David Remnick said he’s had to defend his magazine for featuring cover art depicting Barack and Michelle Obama doing a “terrorist fist jab.”  For his part, Remnick said he has never apologized to those who were offended.

    What was interesting also is how Seth Meyers admitted that he didn’t want to crack jokes about Bruce Jenner’s lucrative decision to become a big-breasted woman at 65. But after Seinfeld called him out for refusing to make fun of Jenner, Meyers walked backed his own politically correct thinking.

    “As far as that cover and that moment, I sort of thought that was a wonderful thing and not the time to make a joke,” Meyers explained. “But Caitlyn Jenner can’t go around doing whatever she wants the rest of her life thinking she’s not going to show up in a monologue.”

    “Ok, good, I feel better now,” Seinfeld responded.
