Sharp tongued, dull witted, Lebowitz wrote a small book (a collection of essays) in 1978 and 40 years later, the left elite is still awaiting her masterwork. What a fraud.
Fran Lebowitz: We Should Turn Trump Over To “The Same Saudis Who Got Rid Of That Reporter”
By Ian Schwartz, RCP, May 17, 2019
‘Vanity Fair’ contributor Fran Lebowitz suggested handing over President Trump to Saudi Arabia, “the same Saudis who got rid of that reporter.” Lebowitz was referring to ‘Washington Post’ journalist Jamal Khashoggi who was allegedly murdered and dismembered by security forces close to members of the Saudi Royal family.
Lebowitz made the comment while expressing her displeasure of the “Republican” Mueller report on Friday’s edition of HBO’s ‘Real Time’ with host Bill Maher. Her comment garnered some applause in the studio audience.
“I didn’t have the highest hopes for the Mueller report only because I remembered Robert Mueller was [a] Republican and he was ahead of the FBI. So I didn’t, like, think he was the second coming of Thurgood Marshall as many people seem to imagine,” Lebowitz lamented.
“The most youthful thing about me is that I’ve retained an ability to be shocked by these people. So I was shocked by Barr. I was shocked. It’s shocking. It’s shocking. It’s a criminal thing that he did,” Lebowitz griped.
“Where are you on impeachment? Yes? No?” host Bill Maher asked.
“I change my mind from day to day,” she said. “Impeachment would be just the beginning of what he deserves. Not even scratching the surface of what he deserves.”
“Whenever I think about this and what he really deserves I think we should turn him over to the Saudis,” Lebowitz said of Trump. “You know, his buddies. The same Saudis who got rid of that reporter. You know, Maybe they could do the same for him,” Lebowitz said.
Following the broadcast on the online-only ‘Overtime’ portion that airs on YouTube, Lebowitz said she regretted her comments and apologized.
“I didn’t realize that I had said it. I had 12 cups of coffee. I regret saying it… I did not mean that and I regret saying it. I regret that everyone misinterpreted it,” Lebowitz apologized.
