The comedian Jon Lovitz has launched an angry tirade against the U.S. president, Barack Obama. Lovitz's rant was part of a podcast entitled 'The ABC's of SNL' and saw the 54 year old funny man take the president to task over the matter of taxes.

"This whole thing with Obama saying the rich don't pay their taxes is f**king bullsh**" Lovitz began. "And I voted for the guy, and I'm a Democrat. What a f**king a**hole. The rich don't pay their taxes? Let me tell you something, right. First they say to you, you're dead broke, 'the United States of America, you can do anything you want, go for it.' So then you go for it and then you make it, and everyone's like 'f**k you." The former Saturday Night Live comedian went on to say "If I make a dollar and out of every dollar I'm taxed at 50, half, at 50 cents, I have to give, isn't that like enough? It's half. HALF!" He later joked that he expected the government to close down his podcast, for expressing his sentiments.

Earlier this month, Jon Lovitz exposed three teenage girls for committing an anti-Semitic prank on a friend's daughter. The girls had left a pile of feces on their victim's doorstep, along with swastikas drawn in maple syrup. Jon posted a picture of them on his Twitter feed, resulting in their permanent expulsion from their school.
