Comedian Jackie Mason on Sunday accused former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg of being a hypocrite on gun control.
"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!" Mason said on Aaron Klein's Sunday radio show on AM 970 "The Answer."
"As if his life counts, but yours is not important?" Mason said of Bloomberg, who says he is considering a run for president as an independent. "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."
Mason also noted that time have changed in that it isn't unthinkable that a Jewish candidate could become president, the New York Post's Page Six reports.
"It's unbelievable that not only is a Jew now acceptable to run for president, now a Jew is a hit!" Mason said. "Because we have a Jew if Bloomberg runs. We have another Jew with [Vermont Sen. Bernie] 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."
