Comedian Jon Lovitz and Other Stars with No Love for President Obama

Former "Saturday Night Live" comedian Jon Lovitz doesn't like President Obama. No, we mean he really, really doesn't like him. The comedian was talking to Kevin Smith on the "ABC's of SNL" podcast when he made the remarks.
"This whole thing with Obama saying the rich don't pay their taxes is f*****g b*******t," he said. "And I voted for the guy and I'm a Democrat. What a f******g a*****e."
Hey Jon, tell us how you really feel.
While many in Hollywood love Obama, there's a vocal - and we mean vocal - group who doesn't. Who else has spoken out against our President?
Ted Nugent
The Motor City Madman Ted Nugent attracted a lot of attention - including some from the Secret Service - when he made some comments about the President. People were up in arms about the rhetoric they said called for violence.
"I'll tell you this right now: If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year," Nugent said. "We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?"
However, The Nuge said he was only talking about making changes at the ballot box.
Victoria Jackson
Another "SNL" alum, Victoria Jackson, spoke out against Obama last year during an appearance at Occupy Wall Street in Manhattan. The die-hard Tea Partier didn't mince her words, either.
"Right now, 50% of people pay taxes and 50% do not. So if everyone gets free stuff who is going to pay for it?" Jackson asked a protestor. The man responded that the U.S. "should end the wars and tax the super rich" to shore up the country's money issues.
"Class warfare is Marxist," she replied. "So you don't think Obama is stirring up racial and class warfare and it's straight out of 'Rules for Radicals' written by Saul Alinsky?"
Matt Damon
Once an Obama supporter, actor Matt Damon came out against the president during an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan, saying he no longer had the same hope he once had. His biggest gripe with the prez? Education.
"I really think he misinterpreted his mandate and has doubled down on a lot of things. The idea that we're testing kids and we're tying teachers salaries to how kids are performing on tests, that kind of mechanized thinking has nothing to do with higher order," he said. "We're training them, not teaching them."
Jane Lynch
Openly gay "Glee" star Jane Lynch criticized President Obama for being too nice about equality for homosexuals.
"We thought the great hope of Obama was going to magically change all that," she said. "He's just nicely walking the middle."
