Mason took offense to the way Coulter compained that too many GOP presidential candidates spoke about Israel in the recent CNN debate.

Octagenarian comic Jackie Mason is picking a fight with Ann Coulter over the political pundit's tweets about Jews.

"This is a low-life yenta," Mason will say about Coulter during a radio interview on Sunday.

Mason, who for decades has been nicknamed "the Ultimate Jew," took offense to the way Coulter complained that too many GOP presidential candidates spoke about Israel in the recent CNN debate.

"How many f—ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?" read Coulter's tweet.

"She can't say Jews without an F in front of it. There's no such thing as a regular Jew, there are only F— Jews," says Mason during an interview conducted Friday that will air Sunday on New York's AM 970 The Answer and NewsTalk 990 AM in Philadelphia.

Aaron Klein, host of Aaron Klein Investigative Radio, conducted the phone interview from his home base in Tel Aviv while Mason was at his home in Manhattan. The Hollywood Reporter obtained audio in advance of the show, and it is embedded below.

"While I'm hesitant to attack my great-grandfather's favorite comedian, I didn't say 'f—ing Jews.' How many f—ing people are going to try to get publicity by lying about this?" Coulter told THR on Friday.

"I said: 'How many f—ing Jews ...?' E.G.: How many f—ing blondes are on Fox News? How many f—ing babies does Hillary Clinton want to kill? How many f—ing Ronald Reagan references do we need?," Coulter said. "See? I'm not saying 'f—ing blondes' or 'f—ing babies' or 'f—ing Reagan;' it's a quantity emphasizer."

Mason ends his segment about Coulter with: "She looks to me like she's the product of a partial-birth abortion."

To which Coulter says: "Mason is the product of a cryonic experiment and has been in the deep freeze so long he's unaware that getting publicity by attacking me is a real hack move."

UPDATE Sep. 26, 1 a.m. EDT: Mason sent the following to THR: "It was an ugly thing I said and I shouldn't have said it. It was not a nice thing to say but I do not take back my comments about her making anti-Semitic remarks. It's amazing that she never apologized for her tweets or denied what I said was true. But I have the decency to apologize."
