Televangelist Pat Robertson Wants to Know Why Jews 'Are So Rich'

WATCH: On his show Robertson, in discussion with a rabbi, reaches conclusion that Jews spend their weekends 'polishing diamonds.'

Famous American televangelist and former Republican presidential candidate Pat Robertson wants to know why Jews are so rich.

On his TV show "The 700 Club," aired on Monday, Robertson posed the question to Rabbi Daniel Lapin, a conservative leader. "What is it about Jewish people that make them prosper financially?"

According to a report in Salon, Lapin explained that Jewish people don't spend their weekends mowing lawns or fixing their cars because they prefer to pay others to do it for them. Robertson reportedly said that Jews were polishing diamonds on their weekends instead of doing handiwork.

Lapin went on to slam the U.S. government as a "Marxist enterprise" whose vision is to turn people into slaves.
