Jackie Mason Suggests Anti-Gun Michael Bloomberg Should Be Protected by Rabbis With Pastrami Sandwiches
Renowned Jewish comedian Jackie Mason “continues to be one of this election cycle’s more amusing political pundits,” said the New York Post’s “Page Six” on Sunday.
Describing Mason taking figurative aim and shooting at former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s stance on gun control, the Post quoted the comic poking fun at the Jewish billionaire who is considering a presidential run as an independent: “He’s standing there with 12 bodyguards, telling you that you shouldn’t have a gun to protect you, while he has 12 guys protecting him! As if his life counts, but yours is not important? If guns are not important and nobody should have a gun to protect himself, why does Bloomberg have 12 bodyguards? Why doesn’t he stand there with 12 rabbis? Why do they have guns? Instead of guns they should have pastrami sandwiches.”
The Post was citing a radio interview Mason gave to Aaron Klein on AM 970’s “The Answer,” in which he also said of the candidates in the presidential campaign, “It’s unbelievable that not only is a Jew now acceptable to run for president, now a Jew is a hit! Because we have a Jew if Bloomberg runs. We have another Jew with Sanders running. And we had a black person before. And the only person who can’t get a job for the presidency is a tall, white gentile.”
