O’Hurley, known for playing the role of J. Peterman, Elaine’s boss on the show “Seinfeld,” and hosting “Family Feud,” said the way liberals in Tinseltown react to conservatives creates a toxic environment.

“They react viscerally to the fact that you don’t agree with them, when you actually voice an opposite opinion,” he said. “And I tend to find that conservatives are, by their nature, individuals. So it’s tough for us to find a group of other people, but we do exist out there.”
