The long-awaited tenth season of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm premiered this week, and the show's creator Larry David wasted no time in skewering current events.
One of the premiere episode's standout moments came when Larry tried on a red Make America Great Again cap—the signature accessory for supporters of President Donald Trump
David's character doesn't don the hat out of love for the President, but rather out of America's aversion to him.
The curmudgeonly Larry finds that the cap acts as a foolproof "people repellent," prompting others to cancel plans with him and leaving Larry perfectly unbothered.

Larry David realizing he can dissuade people from interacting with him by wearing a MAGA hat is top-shelf CURB. #CurbYourEnthusiasm @HBO— Vivek Girotra (@Vivek Girotra) 1579505919.0
Oh, watching Larry David use a MAGA hat to get out of talking to people. This is a stroke of genius. #CurbYourEnthusiasm— matt is having an existential crisis (@matt is having an existential crisis) 1579492630.0
