The world’s most disinterested postman, Newman, is back and this time he’s set his sights on Donald Trump.
Actor Wayne Knight has reprised his role from Seinfeld in a political advert by Democratic political action committee Pacronym in support of mail-in voting for the upcoming presidential election.
The ad was created by former Seinfeld writer David Mandel and titled “A Message from Your Friendly Local Mail Carrier”, in it Knight hits back against the “systematic, premeditated assault on the US mail by President Trump and his so-called Postmaster General”.
Knight jokes about a rather serious matter: “That guy’s never even licked a stamp. They’ve had the unmitigated gall to try to slow down the mail, when everybody knows that the only person who can slow down the mail is a mailman.”
Arguing that “when the mail stops, the world stops”, Knight encouraged viewers to take all steps necessary to make sure they could vote, including voting early in person or leaving extra time to send off a postal ballot with the US Postal Service.
Knight hasn’t reprised the role since Seinfeld‘s final episode way back in 1998, but he has appeared on the small screen since in The Exes, Hot in Cleveland and Torchwood.
