(NEWSER) – The Missouri State Fair is facing backlash over a rodeo clown modeled after President Obama, theKansas City Star reports. The clown, clad in an Obama mask, appeared during a bull riding event; the announcer repeatedly asked the crowd whether "anyone would like to see Obama run down by a bull," according to Show Me Progress, which says the audience was whipped "into a lather." Another clown reportedly played with the lips of the Obama mask, and the clown eventually had to jump aside to avoid a bull. "I felt like I was at a Klan rally," said one fair visitor, per the Raw Story.
