Listen to Jon Lovitz call Obama a “fuckin’ asshole”

Pin it

Twitter vigilante Jon Lovitz seemed to have fallen off the entertainment map in recent years, unless you saw Casino Jack or were a big fan of Subway commercials. But lately, the fifty-four-year-old has found that social media may be more important to your Q rating than playing a homeless guy in Hot in Cleveland.

In a recently-released podcast of "The ABC's of SNL," a series hosted by Kevin Smith that allows Lovitz to reminisce about the Studio 8H days, the comedian got political, ripping into President Obama, for whom he voted in 2008. Clearly exasperated by what he perceives as class-warfare rhetoric and already-steep tax rates, Lovitz said:

"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 fuckin' asshole."

Though I can't see Lovitz voting for Romney, you'd think he was, after he vented:

"First they say…'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.' [Obama] is the perfect example. He's amazing. He had nothing…and the guy ends up being at Harvard. He's the president of the United States. And now he's like, 'Fuck me and everybody who made it like me.'"

It's interesting how old SNL alumni have insinuated themselves into politics. Al Franken is now literally affecting policy, Dennis Miller is pals with Bill O'Reilly, and Victoria Jackson — though she's lost her marbles — is doing her best to eradicate the Marxist homosexual Muslims destroying the U.S. from within. Throw Lovitz in with that crew and you'd have a great round table.
