[See NewsBusters for more.] The new chief executive of the Donald Trump campaign owns a stake in Seinfeld royalties, a fact that naturally was used to make fun of Stephen Bannon on MSNBC. With All Due Respect co-host Mark Halperin admitted that “we jumped at the chance to combine Seinfeld” and Trump. The journalist then played an extended montage of reporters making fun of Bannon and clips of the comedy classic. After wondering, “Who is Stephen Bannon,” Halperin included clips of “George Costanza” reminding, “It’s not a lie if you believe it.”  Included with that was a clip of MSNBC’s Craig Melvin deriding Bannon: “He does not have any experience running this campaign. How did he get this job?”
