Julia Louis-Dreyfus Jokes She Could Be Marianne Williamson’s Running Mate After ‘Yadda Yadda’ Debate Comment

“Veep” star calls Williamson’s use of the Seinfeldian catchphrase “bizarre”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus reacted to hearing her “Seinfeld” catchphrase used by Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson by saying maybe it meant she could be a (real) politician in the future.

Louis-Dreyfus, who played ambitious politician Selina Meyer for seven seasons on HBO’s “Veep,” said it was “bizarre” to hear the catchphrase of another of her characters — Elaine Benes’ “yadda, yadda, yadda” — come out of Williamson’s mouth during Tuesday night’s debate.

“I guess she’s going to pick me as her running mate,” she joked to Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday after watching the clip. “Is that what that means?”

“I think if anything, she would be your running mate,” the late-night host responded.

Louis-Dreyfus admitted that thanks to “Veep,” she has “learned a lot about politics.”

“I’ve got a sense of the true anxiety that probably a lot of these people feel going in and trying to sell themselves as a candidate, as a brand,” she explained.

Williamson made an impression during Tuesday’s face-off with nine of her competitors for the Democratic nomination. According to Google Trends, she was the most-searched candidate during the debate, during which she called for reparations to be paid to the descendants of slaves, among other things.
