Breitbart TV's latest reveal: Jon Lovitz is apparently no longer an Obama fan. The site highlights a clip from a recent Lovitz podcast in which the former Saturday Night Live star takes on the president for his plan to make the rich pay more taxes. "This whole thing with Obama saying the rich don't pay their taxes is f---ing bullshit. And I voted for the guy, and I'm a Democrat. What a f---ing asshole," says the comedian. "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--- you.'"

And Obama himself "is the perfect example," Lovitz continued. "He's amazing. He had nothing. He had no father. He was, you know, of mixed race which is a burden in the United, don't kid yourself, you know, growing up like that, and no money, and the guy ends up being at Harvard. He's the President of the United States. And now he's like, 'f--- me! And everyone who made it like me!'" Lovitz illustrated his own tax situation thusly: "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!" The Huffington Post notes that Lovitz made the comments in January, but the podcast was released Sunday. (More Jon Lovitz stories.)
