COMEDY LEGEND JACKIE MASON SLAMS OBAMA’S HANUKKAH PARTY AS A FRAUDULENT PHOTO OP

Legendary comedian Jackie Mason isn’t fond of President Barack Obama. During the 2008 campaign, Mason called then-candidate Obama “a mindless man.” It seems even three years later, the comic isn‘t ready to shower the world’s most powerful leader with praise.

On Monday, Mason slammed the White House’s Hanukkah celebration, dismissing it as a fraudulent photo opportunity and essentially claiming that the president isn’t genuinely interested in the Jewish community. The event, which was held at the White House on December 8, included 550 guests. Below, watch video of Obama speaking during the celebration:

In an interview with Aaron Klein of New York City’s WABC Radio, Mason gave his less-than-pleasant assessment of the commemorative religious event (listen to it here).

“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 said. “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.”

But he wasn’t done there.

“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,” Mason said. ”You don’t have to go any place. We‘ll put down the tchotchke 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.”

The Blaze has covered the president’s efforts to attract Jewish support before. That being said, there’s no evidence that this Hanukkah party was hosted and created as a ploy to attract the Jewish vote in 2012. Either way, Mason’s words were certainly harsh.

The comic isn’t unfamiliar with controversy, though. As the Huffington Post notes, he purportedly used the Yiddish word “schvartze” in reference to Obama (a word some apparently believe is an outdated racial reference), he has called Islam a “murderous religion” and, as noted, he has slammed the president’s intellect in the past.

We‘ll leave you with Mason’s equally-harsh 2007 assessment of Obama (and his supporters):
