Jerry Lewis Praises Trump and Says Refugees Should ‘Stay Where the Hell They Are’

Jerry Lewis Praises Trump, Says Refugees Should 'Stay Where the Hell They Are'

Jerry Lewis criticized President Obama and praised Donald Trump in an interview on World Over with Raymond Arroyo; the iconic comedian also slammed the Syrian refugee program, telling Arroyo “refugees should stay where the hell they are.”

“No one has worked harder for the human condition than I have, but they’re not part of the human condition,” Lewis continued. “If 11 guys in the group of 10,000 are ISIS, how can I take the chance? I don’t want to lose another Frenchman or another Englishman. That bothers me.”

Lewis suggested the United States take a military solution to ISIS. “Why don’t we have Germany and Italy and Great Britain, why don’t have all of them, including Spain, doing something?” Lewis asked. “Get all of your military together, bring that military to our military and wipe them out.”

“They’re asking to be stopped, and we’re not stopping them, we’re just reporting what they’re doing. It’s ridiculous,” Lewis added.

Lewis criticized Obama for failing to “understand” the threat of ISIS. “He was never prepared for it, and what I’m watching in him is uncertainty.” Lewis said. “And you can’t have uncertainty in a leader.”

Lewis also complimented Donald Trump, telling Arroyo he thinks the Republican frontrunner is “great.”

“He’s a showman and we’ve never had a showman in the president’s chair,” Lewis added.
