White House Weighs in On Obama Rodeo Clown: “Not One of Our Finer Moments”
You are not allowed to mock His Royal Highness.
Rodeo clown Tuffy Gessling was banned for life from the Missouri State Fair rodeo after he wore an Obama mask and taunted bulls on Saturday night. Since then the “Support Rodeo Clown Tuffy Gessling” Facebook Page has amassed over 25,000 supporters in a little over a day.
The White House weighed in on the Obama Rodeo Clown controversy today saying,
“It was certainly not one of the finer moments in our state.”
CBS Local reported:
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.”
