America’s most infamous fictional postman, known for being lazy and inefficient, appeared in a Democratic ad attempting to defend the United States Postal Service.
Actor Wayne Knight appears as his character Newman, from the classic 1990’s sitcom Seinfeld. Newman was a U.S. postal worker who preformed his job with humorous unreliability, habitually hoarding and otherwise sabotaging the integrity of the USPS.
Knight refers to what he calls a "systematic, premeditated assault on the US mail" by the Trump administration to "try to delay voting by mail."
"They had the unmitigated gall to try to slow down the mail, when everyone knows the only person who can slow down the mail is a mailman," says Knight.
"And it's not just your mail-in ballots you gotta worry about," Knight adds while chomping on a turkey leg he pulls from his mailbag.
"Oh, no, no, no. You gotta worry about your grandma's blood pressure medicine, your social security check, military benefits, and millions and millions of Crate & Barrel catalogues…"
The ad was funded by PACRONYM, which boasts that it is "the largest digital super PAC working to get Trump out of the White House."
