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.”

    Jackie is spot on! Also, we should make sure Bloomberg has no soda or no more than 12 ounces anyway! Bloomberg is too regulation-happy and should be MOONED!

  • Joseph T. Simone

    I’ll go along with the rabbis, but I want Genoa Salami as an option.

    And keep in mind that unlike the rest of us sheeple, rich people who can hire armed private security do not need permission from the government to do it.

    We sheeple first have to get permission from the government to own a firearm before we can even buy one.

      Not in Florida, we don’t!

    Jackie Mason is a weak pathetic Jew who is and never will be a fighter.

      Jackie Mason has always stood up strongly for Jews and the causes which are important to committed Jews.

      Personally, I can also attest from personal experience that he is a down to earth, warm gentleman.

    Love that man. Who else is smart enough, brave enough, and witty enough to make those remarks. It felt great to read them and to be able to laugh. That is a wonderful man. God bless him.

  • My uncle Danny Webb knew Jackie. We watched him make with the finger on Ed Sullivan.

    Actually, the rabbis should be armed not with pastrami sandwiches but with squirt bottles of mustard. If you have ever gotten mustard on your clothing, you know how much damage mustard can do.

    Jews without guns? That’s like Jews with guns in ISRAEL or NAZI Germany, we would have no ISRAEL or JEWS in America.

      So who would miss Bloomberg?
