Jackie Mason carried a big schtick as he called Newsmax’s “The Steve Malzberg Show” Friday and proceeded to unleash his outrageous humor on President Barack Obama.
“He doesn’t care what happens to this country. He doesn’t care if the country goes into the toilet by Thursday” the rubber-faced comic told Malzberg.
“All he cares is about one thing: How do I dramatize that the Republicans are no good so I can ruin the next Congressional campaign?”
Mason — whose take-no-prisoners, borscht-belt comedy has won him accolades on Broadway, film, and television — complained the president “doesn’t know anything about anything but if it makes any sense it doesn’t mean anything to him.”
He said he was alarmed the commander-in-chief canceled all tours of the White House to save money in a nod to the sequester.
“Look at this, we don’t have enough money to go on a tour of the White House, which costs $35,” Mason said.
“We don’t have the $35 for the tour, so every Jew in Philadelphia is offering him the money to let them go for a walk in the White House.
“He says, ‘No, I can’t take it because I can’t take money from the public. It’s unfair to take money from somebody when America’s going down the drain because of the one-tenth of 1 percent of the money.’

“Let me ask you a question – is there any family that has a budget of $300, if you were going to take away 8 cents, would the whole family fall apart? Will they have nothing to eat for the next 30 years?”
Mason also said he’s not too concerned about the controversy involving drones and whether the government has the power to use them on American citizens.
“The drone situation, let’s be honest about it, everybody knows there’s not much of a chance that Obama’s going to throw a drone on a Jewish man in Pittsburgh tomorrow,” Mason said.
