Jackie Mason may be rich now, but he came to Hollywood from humble beginnings. “My father was a very successful businessman, but he was ruined in the stock market crash,” the millionaire comedian once said. “A big stockbroker jumped out the window and fell on his pushcart.”
Perhaps that’s why Mason, an 85-year-old legend of stage and screen, is more sympathetic to everyday Americans than he is to the Hollywood types who’ll be celebrated this Sunday at the Oscars.
In fact, Mason says actors shouldn’t even be getting awards. He thinks we should be giving out trophies to a much more important group of people: plumbers.
“The most important conversation in America now is about which movie (will win) which Oscar,” Mason said in an interview with Breitbart that was released on Friday. “Who cares?
“It’s not going to affect your life. It’s not going to make any difference. You know what we should be discussing? Who’s the best plumber. Because a plumber is a lot more important than an actor. And you know what’s more important than a movie? A toilet.
“You can’t get into a toilet, you’re in a lot of trouble. You can’t get into a movie, who cares?” Mason continued. “You ever see a guy who can’t get into a toilet? Can’t walk, can’t move. It looks like he was hit by lightning.”
Besides, Mason says, all of the speeches will say the same thing: “To hell with Trump.”
One of the few registered Republicans in Hollywood, Mason offered a perfect parody of what can be expected from the Oscars.
“‘I want to thank my daughter, my cousin and my brother-in-law … you thought (the previous guy) hated Trump? That’s nothing compared to how much I hate Trump,’” he said, imitating the archetypal Meryl Streep-esque speech.
“And then another guy: ‘Do you know how much those two people hate Trump? That’s nothing compared to what I wish on Trump, and I hope he gets it faster than everybody else gets it.’”

I predict liberals are going to be screaming over Mason’s toilet suggestion. After all, doesn’t he know what color most porcelain is? #ToiletOscarsSoWhite #CheckYourPrivilege
