In the wake of Obama's ludicrious remarks about small business owners, Jon Lovitz has again slammed the liberal president with a hilarious tweet concerning his Nobel Peace Prize that featured on Twitchy on July 18. So far, it has been retweeted 1440 times. This isn't the first time the actor has heavily critizied the president. In April, he went on a profanity laced tirade against the president saying:
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,” Lovitz added. “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.”
In May, Lovitz went on The O'Reilly Factor to say he thought Obama was being "dishonest" and "divisive" in his rhetoric surrounding his tax policies.
I respect the guy. I think it's amazing what he's achieved in his life, but, on this issue, I think he's being not honest, let's say, you know, and it makes me angry because I believe that he's, this whole one percent versus the 99 percent, it's pitting Americans against each other.
The liberal comedian soon reported that most of his left-leaning friends agreed with his criticism of Obama's class warfare rhetoric as he elaborated:
Almost everybody agrees with me. You know, people say, yeah, yes, because - and most of my friends are Democrats, you know, I'm a Democrat - but, yeah, they agree, they say, "Hey, I work really hard, I pay a lot of taxes," because it's not true, you know, and I think it's just a divisive way to appeal to the masses to get votes, and it's just blatant and obvious. And there is no versus, no one is trying to hurt people who are in the lower income tax bracket. We should all be helping each other and bringing everybody together.
We're all in this. I was in New York when 9/11 happened. It wiped out all the class structure because it was like being on the Titanic. You know, you're in fourth class, you're in first class. Everybody's on the same boat. We need to help each other, and he's being divisive.
I didn't build my business, either. twitter.com/realjonlovitz/…
