Curb Your Enthusiasm” returned Sunday night for its long-awaited 10th season and Larry David wasted no time leaping right into the latest cultural landmines.

The season debut featured cracks about Harvey Weinstein, sexual harassment, electric scooters, selfie sticks and President Donald Trump. The part that stuck out most to folks on social media was David donning one of Trump’s signature red “Make America Great Again” caps ― but it wasn’t exactly an endorsement.

David discovered that wearing a MAGA hat was a “great people repellent,” allowing him to avoid talking to others:

Curb your enthusiasm is on point tonight…MAGA Hat is the People Repellent! Best show EVER!!!

He also found another way the cap came in handy:

I’ve missed you, Larry #CurbYourEnthusiasm

ONLY Larry David can get away with mocking MAGA, Mansplaning, Me Too & Harvey Weinstein #CurbYourEnthusiasm

Larry David can make anyone laugh without having to be overly virtuous, partisan, innacurate or censorious. These scenes were better than everything SNL’s dry political satirists have raised in the past 3 years. What a stellar season premiere. #CurbYourEnthusiasm

Larry David using a MAGA hat because “it’s a great people repellent” and everyone mistaking Jeff Garlin for Harvey Weinstein has already made this new season of #CurbYourEnthusiasm comedic genius. I laughed so hard tonight!

This episode was a master class in political humor. Not preachy or accusatory, but hilarious fun that both sides should be able to laugh at. I know I did. #CurbYourEnthusiasm
