SO THIS HAPPENED

Clown Dressed As Obama Causes Stir

Just when you thought state fairs couldn't get more outrageous. A rodeo clown walked out just before a bull-riding event at the Missouri State Fair dressed as President Obama, causing the crowd to go wild. The scene was described by a Missouri resident in the liberal blog Show Me Progress: "The announcer wanted to know if anyone would like to see Obama run down by a bull. The crowd went wild. He asked it again and again, louder each time, whipping the audience into a lather." The bull reportedly then charged the clown. Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, a Republican, tweeted "I condemn the actions disrespectful to POTUS the other night. We are better than this" late Sunday afternoon.
