Jackie Mason Laughs at Obama’s Chanukah Celebration


masonJackie Mason derided Obama’s recent Chanukah party, in a conversation with Aron Klein.

Here are some quotes:

“I don’t even think he knew that he was talking about something that’s Jewish. It could have been Muslim, it could have been all together a religion he never even heard of. He doesn’t know, he doesn’t care. He’s strictly in there to take a picture, and the picture could have been about anything,”

“A bunch of advisors, most of whom are Jewish anyways – because he has more Jews in his cabinet than Netanyahu. He’s jammed up with Jews all around him – and they told him, if you wanna get them back, Hanukkah is a good idea.”

“You don’t have to go any place. We’ll put down the Chachke and you’ll see a candle, you’ll light it from this side, and that’s enough information for him to accumulate without a teleprompter. So he did it in 10 minutes.”

Here is the audio and transcript. At 5:45 Mason joins the chorus of the Obama Hanukkah critics. In the beginning Klein laughs, than Mason starts himself to laugh to spur a Klein laugh. At least he’s a comedian, so we don’t have to take serious.

  1. R’ Yankel is amazing. All his maarochos are perfectly on target. He hits the nail on the head. The biggest “lamdan” i know on inyonai d’almoh! He has many more clips that are even better than this one, which he posts on youtube, but only when he knocks Obama does it make it to the news… (See his clips on Trump, and on going to mars, etc..)

  2. I love the “critism” That
    Obama took only 10 minutes to light. I guess he isnt noeig like Hrav Mason who no doubt says viyhi noam 7 times, mizmor shir chanikas.

  3. I’m no fan of Obama but to mock the president in general and in particular when he is reaching out to the Jewish community is absolutely unacceptable!!!And a person like JM doesn’t belong on a site like Matzav.

  4. If Reb Moshe threw this menuvel out of his chashava father’s levaya, why are you quoting him. Do you need rayos as to what we have in the blackhouse? Maybe quote achashverosh-nutjob or his comrades in arms from nut-ura-carter?
    Get some credible guys like Kadafi, Mubarak, or Assad.

  5. This guy is the epitome of the “comedian” whose actis mostly foul-mouthed routines and out-of-bounds references. Why is Matzav posting this?

  6. #1. Never take another Jews chesbon. Who knows his story? I hope he comes back, but he would not be the first who make a big error in leaving the derech on his own, or because someone/thing really turned them off.

  7. lets follow the satmar rebbe shlitta

    enough with bashing the president of a medina shel chessed

    our grandparents would kiss president obamas hand

    despite his shortcomings

  8. Say what you want but in the end what’s the point in posting such an article? also regarding #7 it’s very important to keep that in mind and stop judging people by what they did or do!
