When does the racism stop? The president of the United States is supposed to be one of the most respected Americans in the country. So, it’s sad to see someone disrespect the office by portraying the president to be an inhuman buffoon. But then again, when it comes to the heehaws at rodeos, its never a surprise when you see them doing things that are just flat out ridiculous.
The president keeps pushing though, despite constant attacks. His administration’s recent announcements on mass incarceration were huge, and we hope he continues to move forward. But check out his story below, it’s just ridiculous.
The anti-Obama hits just keep on coming. This time the attack is coming from a Missouri State Fair, where the rodeo decided to have a rodeo clown wear a President Obama mask, have other clowns play with the lips of the “president” and ask the crowd if they wanted to see “Obama run down by a bull.”
The condemnation of the rodeo’s actions have come from both sides of the aisle. Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, a Republican, sent out a tweet saying the clown act was “disrespectful” to Obama, and “we are better than this.”
A spokesman for Gov. Jay Nixon, a Democrat, said the governor “agrees that the performance was disrespectful and offensive, and does not reflect the values of Missourians or the State Fair.”
State Fair officials issued a statement calling the performance “inappropriate.”
“We strive to be a family friendly event and regret that Saturday’s rodeo badly missed that mark,” the statement said.
