WATCH: Letterman and Seinfeld Talk Michelle Wolf, Politics and ... Raisins from Netflix's FYSEE Space

"I really had great admiration for the fact that she was able to just walk into that room and decimate the place," David Letterman said of Michelle Wolf's White House Correspondents' Dinner jokes. You can watch the clip HERE

The comments were part of a conversation with Jerry Seinfeld from Netflix's FYSEE space in Los Angeles. A transcript of the exchange can be found below. 

The FYSEE space was built to host screenings and panels, and includes an experiential floor that will accommodate more than 500 guests along with immersive activations. Anchored by Emmy-eligible programming across the Netflix portfolio, industry events will run until June 10.
and Seinfeld’s stand-up special, Jerry Before Seinfeld are streaming on Netflix. New episodes of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee are set to launch later in 2018.

DAVID LETTERMAN: Michelle Wolf, may I, if you'll indulge me ... 

JERRY SEINFELD: Sure, go ahead. 

LETTERMAN: So I saw the complete script of what she had done. The more I got to thinking about it, I thought "wow, that was great." Because, just, whatever the reaction - there's no damage. And she had the guts to stand up there and didn't apologize, where everybody is now apologizing for everything. So whether you liked it or not, I really had great admiration for the fact that she was able to just walk into that room and decimate the place (applause). But, you know her?

SEINFELD: No, I don't know her, I've just seen her on TV. But everybody talks about how dedicated - that she's out every night working on her stuff and those are the kind of people I really like. 

LETTERMAN: Do you do Trump stuff when you go out?

SEINFELD: No, it doesn't interest me. I do a lot of raisin stuff.  


SEINFELD: Raisins, I have a lot of raisin material. Because you know, you have the Sun-Maid company ... 


SEINFELD: And then you have the Raisinet people.

LETTERMEN: Yeah, that's right. And you're going to go with the Sun-Maid people. 

SEINFELD: I just think it's interesting that after 80 years, Sun-Maid finally went "hey, why don't we put some chocolate on it." Imagine not thinking of that for 80 years. So that really gets me excited that people pay me to talk about those kinds of things.
