During a radio interview Sunday, comic legend and self-appointed political pundit Jackie Mason sounded off on the latest debate performances of some of the major Republican contenders.
Mason dished on Jeb Bush:
There’s as much chance for him to become the nominee as there is for my sister-in-law and my sister-in-law doesn’t even live in this country. If he was hiding and no one knew where he was he’d stand a better chance than if he shows up.
He’s very ambitious for this job and he’s better equipped for this job than almost everybody. He’s not comfortable as a fighter. He looks very uncomfortable trying to be a tough guy. It’s like a scared fighter who’s telling you, ‘I’ll punch you right in the mouth. If you say one more word I’ll kill ya.’ Meanwhile, as he’s saying it his hand is shaking, his body is quivering and he looks like he wants to lie down for an hour to get over it.
Apparently, Fiorina is “too intelligent” for Mason’s liking:
Compared to everybody else, she is so much more precisely informed on foreign policy issues and so clearly has a definition of precisely what she would do. She can name every island in that area, every battleship, every plane and how many we need to accomplish what…
Every element of the situation she has so well and completely defined. It’s a little too much intelligence. You need an intelligent person, but not that much. She overdoes it with her intelligence. I don’t like the way she explains it. Too fast. Too good and too intense. It’s like if someone came to fix your chair. He knows how to fix your chair perfectly, he can probably do it better than everybody but he explains it too much.
And Mason did not leave out the frontrunner, Donald Trump:
They love his attitude. That attitude is he’s going to change everything. They don’t know what he might change but they cant wait to see what it will be. This is the first time a guy might get elected because of what they don’t know he’s going to do. They cant wait to vote for him to find out what it is he’s talking about.
Who knows? Maybe he’ll run around the country and tear everybody’s pants off and maybe the whole country will be walking around in the nude for a year-and-a-half.
