Legendary actor-director-comedian Jerry Lewis blasted President Barack Obama’s policy in the Middle East, stating that he wasn’t prepared for the Islamic State and suggesting that he’s not a leader.
He made his remarks during a recent exclusive interview on “The World Over with Raymond Arroyo.”
Lewis said the United States should put together a true international alliance to defeat the Islamic State terrorists once and for all.
“They’re asking to be stopped,” he said. “And we’re not stopping them. We’re just reporting what they’re doing.”
He was also asked about the president’s plan to bring in 10,000 Syrian refugees.
“Refugees should stay where the hell they are. No one has worked harder for the human condition than I have,” he told Arroyo, referring to his 44 years hosting the Muscular Dystrophy Association telethon. “But they’re not part of the human condition. If 11 guys in the group of 10,000 are ISIS—how can I take that chance?”
Lewis, who entertained America with his showmanship for decades, praised Trump’s own showmanship.
“I think he’s great,” Lewis said of Trump. “He’s a showman and we’ve never had a showman in the president’s chair.”
Arroyo reminded Lewis that we had former actor Ronald Reagan.
“Well, that’s different,” answered Lewis. “You can’t make do a comparison on Ronald Reagan because I can do three hours on him with just praise, he was so good.”
