As if Larry David’s noggin weren’t famous enough already, now he has found a new and original use for it: In the season premiere of Curb Your Enthusiasm on HBO on January 19, David covered his bald pate with one of Donald Trump’s signature red “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) caps—and the move was the exact opposite of an endorsement for the president’s reelection.
He was so pleased with the results, he said, “It’s really coming in handy.”
Fans loved the gambit. On Twitter, one viewer said, “This episode was a master class in political humor. Not preachy or accusatory, but hilarious fan that both sides should be able to laugh at. I know I did. #CurbYourEnthusiasm”

Another said, “Larry wearing a MAGA hat as a way to make someone cancel all future involvement with him has got me sucked right back into #CurbYourEnthusiasm”
