Obama Clown

Oh I see, bad when it is Obama, good when it was Bush. If the rodeo clown would have had a Bush mask, there would not have been a peep.

What is happening to our country. Missouri…shame on you.

The Missouri State Fair on Monday imposed a lifetime ban on a rodeo clown whose depiction of President Barack Obama getting charged by a bull was widely criticized by Democratic and Republican officials alike.

The rodeo clown won’t be allowed to participate or perform at the fair again. Fair officials say they’re also reviewing whether to take any action against the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association, the contractor responsible for Saturday’s event

.

The entertainment during the bull riding contest featured a clown wearing a mask of Obama with an upside down broomstick attached to his backside. Spectators were asked if they wanted to see “Obama run down by a bull.” Many in the audience responded enthusiastically.

Numerous Missouri officials denounced the act after video and photos were posted online. Some Democratic Missouri lawmakers suggested Monday that there should be financial consequences for the fair. A bit thin skinned Obama supporters don’t ya think?

A Rodeo!   This is the red-neck mecca.  I’d be surprised that anyone hasn’t made an Obama joke there.  This is where political correctness goes out the window.

With Chevy Chase making a career out of making fun of Gerald Ford, then Regan, then the Bush family.  Every day there was some Bush joke out there.  Most  of them were very derogatory… like comparing him to a chimp.  Now a “rodeo clown” can’t make a joke about our current president?  This tells me just how far down the rabbit hole towards tyranny our country has really gone in the last few years.
