Actor Steve Guttenberg is the latest Hollywood type to voice his disapproval of President Barack Obama, saying he’s fed up with the first family’s vacationing and Obama’s mingling with the stars.
Guttenberg, perhaps best known for his role in the 1980s “Police Academy” franchise and “Three Men and a Baby,” made the comments during a recent interview with CreditCards.com.
While the discussion was largely finance-based, things turned political when Guttenberg was asked whether he thinks Washington can “rein in the misbehavior”:
It’s hard to believe in the presidency anymore. I voted for Obama, I love Obama, but I don’t want to see Obama on “The View,” I don’t want to see him playing Frisbee, I don’t want to know that it’s $40,000 a plate at George Clooney’s house, and I adore George Clooney. Hey man, I’ve got a friend of mine who’s got a $7 an hour job at Dunkin Donuts and he can’t get a $9 an hour job over at the country club because there are so many people in front of him. I believe that the president should be his desk all day. I don’t want to see him on vacation, I don’t want to see him at Martha’s Vineyard, I don’t want to see Mrs. Obama in Spain. No, no, I do not want to see that because everybody’s struggling. These CEOs shouldn’t be taking all this money. No Rolls Royces. No private planes.
Guttenberg’s comments come one month after actor and comedian Jon Lovitz went on an expletive-laden diatribe against the president.
