They say by no means meet your heroes, and Alyssa Farah Griffin is actually taking the recommendation to coronary heart. Griffin, The View‘s resident conservative commentator, revealed on this morning’s present that she was too scared to say hello to comic Larry David when she noticed him on the road, regardless of idolizing the Seinfeld creator.
“I believe Larry David may be the only funniest dwelling individual. I’m an enormous fan. I not too long ago noticed him on the Upper East Side,” she revealed, earlier than noting, “I’m glad I didn’t say hello as a result of he wouldn’t like me as a result of I’m a Republican.”
Joy Behar insisted, “That’s not true,” and informed Griffin David wasn’t “like that.” We can take her phrase for it, however sadly, we’ll by no means actually know — until Griffin runs into David uptown once more. Paging Deuxmoi!
Her feedback got here throughout a dialog about Walter Isaacson’s Elon Musk biography, which recounts a tense second between Musk and David at a marriage.
Per Isaacson’s e book, David bluntly requested the Tesla CEO, “Do you need to simply homicide youngsters in faculties?” referring to Musk’s Republican help and the latest Uvalde bloodbath, which occurred simply days previous to the marriage, based on Insider
Musk replied that he’s “anti-kid homicide,” however David pushed again, “Then how might you vote Republican?”
David is a longtime, outspoken Democrat who infamously feuded with one other Republican, Alan Dershowitz, on Martha’s Vineyard in 2021. A Page Six report from the time alleged that David “screamed” on the Trump lawyer whereas confronting him about his relationship with Mike Pompeo, Trump’s former secretary of state.
“I noticed you. I noticed you together with your arm round Pompeo! It’s disgusting!” David allegedly informed Dershowitz, later including once more, “It’s disgusting. Your entire enclave — it’s disgusting. You’re disgusting!”
While we doubt Griffin would obtain such a verbal assault from the comic, we actually perceive her hesitation. In any case, we advise bringing Behar alongside for a buffer.
The View airs weekdays at 11/10c on ABC.
