Jon Lovitz Slams 'Hypocritical' Obama 'Selling' a 'Victim Mentality'
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's Hannity show on FNC, comedian Jon Lovitz complained that he finds President Obama's attacks on the wealthy to be "hypocritical" while the President raises so much campaign money from wealthy donors, including from Wall Street, and criticized Obama for "selling" a "victim mentality."
After asserting that he does not regret voting for Obama, but that he is not sure whether he will vote for him again this year, Lovitz brought up Obama's fundraising with George Clooney as he quipped:
But what I find is he's hypocritical with saying the, you know, the one percent don't get us, and, you know, he's a multimillionaire now, you know, they're not paying their fair share of taxes, now I'm going over to George Clooney's house to get money from millionaires and billionaires, and he collected $15 million, and, you know, "Wall Street are the bad guys, but now I have to go to a dinner with Wall Street people to get money for my campaign."
The liberal comedian, who has recently been critical of Obama's class warfare rhetoric, went on to fault Obama for promoting a "victim mentality" which will discourage people from succeeding:
Yeah, I just think he should, instead of making people victims of people who are successful, we should be telling people, "Look, if you're having a hard time, I feel bad for you, let's look at what you're doing, let's teach you how to succeed, let's give you the tools to succeed, as opposed to turning everybody into victims. A victim mentality it what he's selling, and nobody with a victim mentality will get anywhere, ever. They will never succeed.
