Fair Bans Rodeo Clown Who Wore Obama Mask

The Missouri State Fair has banned a rodeo clown who this past weekend donned a President Obama mask, and asked a crowd if they wanted to see "Obama run down by a bull."

Officials said the clown will never perform at the fair again, the Associated Press reported.

Organizers are also reviewing whether to take any actions against the contractor responsible for Saturday's rodeo.

There has been bipartisan criticism of the gag.
