Legendary Comedian John Lovitz Praises Trump For Support of Israel, Blasts Democrats For Anti-Semitism

Legendary comedian Jon Lovitz criticized Democrats and “self-hating Jew” Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for their indifference toward Israel and inability to quell the nation’s escalating anti-Semitism problem.

The 66-year-old actor/comedian told Fox News that individuals are free to vote for whomever they choose, however he added a significant caveat to this.

“If you’re Jewish – they passed a bill about condemning anti-Semitism, which is condemning hate and violence toward Jewish people. 70 Democrats voted against it.”

“And you’ve got Chuck Schumer, who’s Jewish, saying we should have elections in Israel now. And the reason President [Donald] Trump and other people got mad is you’re not supposed to interfere – ironically, Trump – interfere in another country’s elections and in the middle of a war!” he continued.

“And Bernie Sanders, he’s always been, you know … I said it before, and I’ll say it again, he’s a self-loathing Jew. And there’s a lot of them. ‘Why do you say that?’ I go, well, it’s clear as a bell, he’s not for Israel [saying] ‘They have to stop this war.’”

“Why isn’t he condemning Hamas for starting it? What about that? And whatever you think of Trump, the fact is that he’s done more for Israel than any president in the history of this country.” the comedian added.

Lovitz went on, launching a defense of Trump against common charges of anti-semitism.

“And the weird thing about Trump is he’s very different in person than he is on television. But if you want to say, ‘Well, he’s anti-Semitic,’ I go, well, I don’t know, his daughter – he’s crazy about Ivanka [Trump]– converted to Judaism, married a Jewish guy, his grandchildren are Jewish.” Lovitz contended.

“There’s a beach club in Palm Beach. And they don’t let Jews in that club. They’re banned. And right next door to that beach club is Mar-a-Lago’s beach club and they let in Jews. So which of those clubs are anti-Semitic, the one that bans Jews or the ones that [let] them in?” he concluded.
