The White House sensitivity program to educate the public not to make fun of the president continues. White House spokesman Josh Earnest, who hails from Missouri, commented on the recent incident in Missouri of a rodeo clown wearing a Barack Obama mask and daring a bull to attack him by saying that it was “certainly not one of the finer moments in our state.”
Earnest added that he didn’t know Obama’s thoughts on the incident, who is currently sunning himself on Martha’s Vineyard.
Meanwhile, the rodeo clown has apologized, the company that hired him has apologized, the president of the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association has stepped down, and the clown has been “banned for life” from performing at the state fair. State officials have attacked the clown’s act and the NAACP has called for an investigation.
