At the South by Southwest premiere of Pee-wee’s Big Holiday on Thursday night, producer Judd Apatow mocked Donald Trump by comparing him to a contestant on The Bachelor.

“Is the Trump thing scaring you? He’s kind of like the psycho girl on The Bachelor that you don’t want to get kicked out too soon, because she might have sex with somebody in the ocean,” he was quoted as saying. “But it’s time he doesn’t get the rose.”

Apatow has made that comparison before. Back in 2015, during an interview with Don Lemon on CNN, Apatow said, “I’ve said this before, but I really do believe that Donald Trump is the crazy girl on The Bachelor that you don’t want to get kicked off too early because they’re fun to watch, but you pray that they will not win.”

Apatow added, “I find it an enormous distraction to important conversations about what we need to do in this country. I ultimately believe it’s about staying famous. Donald Trump has run for president before, and a lot of people do this, I think, to get a job as a commentator.”
