Daily Show: Dov Hikind’s black face is a war on Purim

Jon Stewart & Co. have some fun with Dov Hikind’s decision to go black face on Purim.

In the spirit of our "How to tell a kosher Jewish Oscars joke" video, check out Billy Crystal at the 2012 Oscars (jump to 2:02 of the video below). Two lessons for future Hikinds:

  1. There’s a difference between a comic impersonating an actual celebrity and a politician deciding it would be holiday fun to be some random, generic black dude.
  2. Keep it in the mishpocha — just one Jew impersonating another.
