Jay Leno “Any American That’s Not John Kerry is Welcome in Israel”

He came straight from Cambodia to be here

He came straight from Cambodia to be here

I’ve never bought into the idea, popular recently among some, that Leno is a secret conservative. But he does make jokes that come from completely outside the media bubble. It might be his persona which goes back to the blue collar working class comic, now an endangered species.

The idea that Kerry is unwelcome in Israel doesn’t exist in the media bubble so it’s certainly interesting to hear him tell a joke that would shock and offend most liberal Jews.

 Jay Leno sees a small silver lining in the recent collapse of U.S.-backed Mideast peace talks: It should make his job just a little easier when he performs in front of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu later this month.

“I guess any American that’s not John Kerry is more than welcome there right now,” Leno said.

Kerry recently caused an uproar when he warned that Israel could become an “apartheid state” if it doesn’t reach a peace deal with the Palestinians.

For Leno, the trip will be his first to Israel. At a time when pro-Palestinian activists are urging entertainers to boycott the Jewish state, he said he didn’t have “any problem” with his decision to perform. “It’s a great honor. It’s a great country. It’s a great people,” he said.

While said he sees both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, he said he considers himself to be “very pro-Jewish, very pro-Israeli.” Leno himself is not Jewish.

“At some point in your life, you have to sort of take sides. I tend to side with the Jewish point of view on many things, especially issues like this one. I realize how important Israel is,” he said.

Again, an attitude suggestive of a different and older entertainment industry. It’s the kind of thing you might have expected to hear from Frank Sinatra back in the day.

You don’t tend to hear it much in the new entertainment industry.

    That pic is before Kerry’s plastic surgery! Compare recent photos with this one. No more sagging and the huge rounded jaw line he has now is quite different than this sharp bony one. I get it that vain celebrity men whose bread and butter are their looks go under the knife, but an old politician? It tells me something, and that something is pretty vacuous.

      Politics is ALL entertainment therefore it stands to reason from Kerry’s point of view – whose family benefited from the displacement of natives and theft of their hunting grounds – that he should re-design his face.

      Purpose of the Vietnam war was to permit the owners of the Bank of England and the Federal Reserve to steal the gold of Vietnam, empowering the American military industry and adding debt to the US government, no matter how many men lost their limbs.

      Who owns the State Bank of Vietnam? Most likely the Rothschilds, Rockefellers and British Elites et al. In the end, British elites benefited from the Vietnam War as they did from other wars where Americans died.

    That seditious traitor Kerry shouldn’t be welcome in America

      The caption refers to Kerry as a former Vietnam vet. How can you be a former vet? You’re either a veteran of war or you’re not.
      Looks like Kerry must have been kicked out of the Vet’s club for being such a disgrace.

    John “I served in Vietnam ” Kerry and Hanoi Jane Fonda should have been kicked out of the USA . Both are selfish , anti- american , zero talent and are communist

  • Ban Liberals

    Just reading or hearing the words “John Kerry” infuriate me. A lower piece of garbage has never walked the Earth.

    Let’s face it. At this point in time Israel is the most improbable and counter-intuitive nation on earth. Of course Jay Leno wants to go there!
