Jon Lovitz is learning the hard way it’s news when a comedian criticizes the president in the Age of Obama.
Most comedians would rather talk about anything other than the President these days. And when they do, it’s often to defend his administration, not hold it accountable for the last three-plus years.
Lovitz’s now-famous anti-Obama rant did more than just go viral. It got picked up by most major news organizations and web sites. What a sad state of comic affairs when a comedian mocking the president makes headlines.
But Lovitz isn’t backing down, even though it would likely help his career to do a quick mea culpa and pretend to blindly follow along with his comic peers.
Lovitz’s Twitter account is clearly feeling the heat from Obama disciples. But Lovitz isn’t back down.
