(NEWSER) – The Missouri State Fair Commission has banned a rodeo clown who came dressed in an Obama mask on the weekend from ever performing there again,KDSK reports. The clown appeared during a bull riding event. Another clown reportedly played with the lips of the Obama mask, and the clown eventually had to jump aside to avoid a bull. Many media outlets reported that the show's announcer asked the crowd whether "anyone would like to see Obama run down by a bull," but the announcer's attorney says that comment came from the clown too, theAP reports. Regardless, Show Me Progress says the audience was whipped "into a lather" by the performance. "I felt like I was at a Klan rally," said one fair visitor, per theRaw Story.
