When the “Saturday Night Live” alum chided President Barack Obama for saying the rich don’t pay their fair share earlier this year, he ended up letting a security escort walk him to his car.
Lovitz tells Big Hollywood that his now infamous podcast rant against Obama’s class warfare rhetoric led to death threats left on the voice mail of his Universal City-based comedy club.
“I know where you eat,” one message warned.
Now, mind you: Jon Lovitz still probably thinks that he doesn’t actually have to stop being a Democrat and/or a liberal. Then again, you never do… up to the point where it is made clear that you will be leaving, whether you like it or not. The good news? You typically end up liking it, after all. There’s an amazing amount of stupidity that you can finally stop having to humor, which makes a difference.
So, should be fun to watch. Especially the part where Lovitz finally realizes that he’s free at last.
