Missouri Football Fans Boo Obama During Halftime National Guard Ceremony
It seems like it was just yesterday that a rodeo clown mocked Obama at the Missouri State Fair.
Now it’s the football fans…
Missouri football fans booed Barack Obama during a halftime National Guard ceremony at the Missouri-Tennessee game.
The Columbian reported:
The mention of the U.S. president elicited booing during a halftime ceremony at the Missouri-Tennessee game.
During halftime, new members of the Missouri National Guard were being sworn in on the field of Memorial Stadium, said team spokesman Chad Moller.
Part of the oath the service members took reads, “I will obey the orders of the president of the United States.” During a pause after that line was read, members of the crowd could clearly be heard booing and jeering, said LeMari Porter, an MU student present at the game.
MU student Julia Bosley was sitting in the general admission section on the hill during the game. She said she thinks the man standing behind her, who appeared to be a Missouri fan was the first to boo.
“He started booing, and then it just sort of spread around the stadium,” Bosley said. “I was sitting with my boyfriend’s family, and we all just turned around and looked at him in disbelief.”
Bosley said no one said anything to stop the man, and several people nearby joined in.
