Hmm, seems to me, multiple Presidents have been made fun of by folks wearing masks of them. Of course, perhaps this is like a picture of Muhammad, and it qualifies as blasphemy…
Missouri State Fair officials and politicians on Sunday condemned the performance of a rodeo clown who donned a mask resembling President Obama during Saturday’s bull riding competition.
A tempest over the incident erupted after the Show Me Progress website reported a Facebook account of it.
The Facebook writer said he had taken a Taiwanese student to the rodeo in Sedalia Saturday night. During the bull riding segment a rodeo clown appeared wearing an Obama mask.
“The announcer wanted to know if anyone would like to see Obama run down by a bull,” the posting said. “The crowd went wild. He asked it again and again, louder each time, whipping the audience into a lather.”
Another clown then apparently joined the performance.
