When the “Saturday Night Live” alum chided President Barack Obama for saying the rich don’t pay their fair share earlier this year, he ended up letting a security escort walk him to his car. Lovitz tells Big Hollywood that his now infamous podcast rant against Obama’s class warfare rhetoric led to death threats left on the voice mail of his Universal City-based comedy club. “I know where you eat,” one message warned.
“I believed in him, I agreed with everything he was saying when he ran for president, I was listening to what he said, I thought this guy thinks like me and I agree with him. And now he’s changing.”“This whole idea of this 1 percent versus the 99 percent, it’s a false static,” said Lovitz, adding that Obama was “creating a false class warfare” with his policies and rhetoric.
