The press also gave Obama a chance to nip this absurd controversy in the bud, instead the White House’s response was, “he has no reaction.”
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The White House isn’t saying much about a State Fair event in which a rodeo clown riled up the crowd as a bull chased a masked man imitating President Barack Obama.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest says he had no reaction from Obama. But he says that personally, as a native of Missouri, “It was certainly not one of the finer moments in our state.”
Missouri’s elected officials have denounced Saturday’s rodeo clown act as disrespectful.
