‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Producer Wishes Show Could Make Marjorie Taylor Greene ‘Go Away’

After the latest Curb Your Enthusiasm season started with Larry David getting arrested for offering a bottle of water to Leon’s Auntie Rae while she waited to vote in Georgia, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) nearly lost her damn mind

No 144 characters for MTG! In a lengthy rant that included histrionics about electric cars threatening to turn her state from the Bible Belt into the battery belt, she raged against the Curb machine: “This week’s episode lied and painted GA conservatives and Trump supporters as racists and red necks and made fun of our good new law that stops the Stacey Abrams vote pandering machine and prevents voter fraud,” she ranted. “We in Georgia are fed up with disgusting Hollywood and their disgusting values and elite judgement in our state that is trying to turn GA blue!”

Unsurprisingly, the powers-that-be at Curb Your Enthusiasm were “thrilled that Marjorie Taylor Greene did not like it.” Executive producer Jeff Schaffer told Hollywood Reporter that he was “very excited that that festering, bottle blonde, pustule dangling off the backside of the House of Representatives was unhappy with it. I love that she called us commies when she’s denying aid to Ukraine. That would be the height of irony or cynicism, if she knew what those words meant. I guess all I can really say is, I wish we could show her our collective scrotum and make her go away.”

While this week’s episode found Larry back in California, Taylor Greene will likely get more opportunities to shake her fists and scream at Hollywood. David still faces those charges back in MTG’s home state of Georgia, a plotline that will no doubt be revisited in future episodes. In fact, a Curb trial could be a callback to the ill-received Seinfeld finale in which all the major characters appeared before a judge before getting tossed in the slammer. Does David dare to go there again?

A trial could mean more appearances from Georgia icon and object of MTG scorn Stacey Abrams, who showed up in a Curb episode to praise David’s accidentally heroic actions. “Larry David is about action, not words,” she said earlier this season on a fictional Curb newscast. “He saw an injustice and he did what he could to right it. And that's what we need today in America.”

One other thing Curb producers appear to need? More ways to outrage Marjorie Taylor Greene.
