Jon Lovitz To Hannity: Obama 'Hypocritical' For George Clooney Fundraiser (VIDEO)

It looks as though Jon Lovitz isn't through venting his frustrations with President Obama.

After the comedian called the President "a f*cking a**hole" for "saying the rich don't pay their taxes" on his "The ABCs of SNL" podcast last month, Lovitz appeared on Sean Hannity's Fox News program Thursday night to continue criticizing the President. This time, he took issue with Obama's recent fundraiser with George Clooney that raised $15 million for his campaign. Lovitz called the move "hypocritical" since the President has spoken out against our nation's richest Americans for not paying their fair share of taxes.

In a transcript highlighted by conservative blog Newsbusters, Lovitz draws a direct comparison between Obama's campaign fundraising and his stance on taxing the rich:

"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.'"

Lovitz told Fox News' Megyn Kelly earlier this week that his anti-Obama remarks have prompted a backlash in the form of people calling the Jewish comedian a Nazi on Twitter. However, he also tells Hannity that he has been offered book, TV and movie deals in the wake of his comments because "what I said was right."
