Comedian Jackie Mason called President Obama a “liar” who “should be locked up” over Obamacare-related insurance plan losses in a radio interview on New York’s WABC Sunday night.

“The whole country is walking around wondering, ‘Is this guy really the president of a country?’ He sounds more like a maniac in an asylum.  He’s saying things that nobody believes. He was always lying every day of his life. Every time he talks it was a lie. The only time he tells the truth is when you didn’t hear from him,” Mason said on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio.”

“This is becoming so ridiculous, that even the biggest liar can’t top himself — he can’t top himself you feel like you’re someplace in a nuthouse when you listen to him,” said Mason, the standup veteran of more than 50 years.

“He looks at you straight in the face, and tells you that if you want your plan, you got your plan, you keep your plan. Now, a month-and-a-half later, you got no plan, you lost your plan, and he tells you you still got a plan,” Mason said.

Mason said that Obama can “blatantly lie to your face” then “lie about the fact that he never lied” and then “lie again about the next lie he told.”

“He’s the only guy in America who would have the nerve to lie this much.”

“A guy like this should be locked up,” Mason said. “If he wasn’t the president, he’d be in jail or a sanitarium. He wouldn’t be talking to people in this condition.”

Mason, who has been an old man for much of his life and career, appeared in the modern comedy classic “Caddyshack 2″ and played Krusty the Klown’s father Rabbi Hyman Krustofski on “The Simpsons.”
