Victoria Jackson may be a former comedienne, but her latest jaunt in the spotlight isn’t a joke! The Saturday Night Live alum, who reigned in the era of Dana Carvey and Dennis Miller in the ’80s and early ’90s, is now a passionate member of the Tea Party and prides herself on being a Hollywood conservative. Victoria has even taken her political views to the White House, calling President Barack Obama a communist.
At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Victoria was selling her CD Use Me, which includes the song she wrote about President Obama titled “There’s a Communist Living in the White House.”
In the video she strums on a guitar and wears a huge polka dot bow, but it seems like her words in the skit are not a joke.
“In 2008, I heard someone was running for President who was left of Hillary. And I said, “What’s left of Hillary?” That would be Communist! So I did research, and I was horrified,” Victoria responded, via the Stir, when asked why she joined the Tea Party.
“Obama is a communist. I only woke up because we elected a communist. How can I hold it inside when I see people going off a cliff? I have to say, ‘You are going off a cliff,’ ” she added.
