Washed Up "Comic" Jon Lovitz Gets Political

Subway spokesman and former comedian Jon Lovitz dipped his toe into the political world the other day by referring to Pres. Obama as a “fucking asshole.” Lovitz, best known for being the horrible replacement for Phil Hartman on News Radio and for playing a liar on Saturday Night Live, was talking on his podcast, ABC’s of SNL, when he went off.

“This whole thing with Obama saying the rich don’t pay their taxes is fucking bullshit. And I voted for the guy and I’m a Democrat. What a fucking asshole. The rich don’t pay their taxes? Let me tell you something, right. First they tell you–you’re dead broke–This is the United States of America, you can do anything you want, go for it. So then you go for it, and then you make it, and everyone’s like, Fuck you.”

First off, how does Lovitz even have enough money for him to care? The guy has done nothing of merit since the 90s. Does Subway pay that well?

Second off, no actual Democrat would say such nonsense. The idea of progressive taxation is a bedrock element of liberalism, and no liberal would actually argue that rich people need to pay fewer taxes. Lovitz is showing himself to be a selfish, arrogant dick who cares only for himself and not for the well being of the country.

He then went on to attack 99% of the country. When his guest, Kevin Smith, called him out on his unfair attack, Lovitz accused Smith of “masquerading” as a member of the 99%. Whatever that means. Warren Buffet, one of the richest men on the planet, supports the idea of progressive taxation. He’s not masquerading as anything. Lovitz supports class warfare - he is at war with 99% of the country.
Jon Lovitz is just an annoying loser. Perhaps he should hide his money in the Cayman Islands like his buddy, Mitt Romney.

The last time I laughed at Lovitz was in the lowbrow comedy "Rat Race". That was some time ago. Too bad he has deteriorated this much!
