“Trump’s electoral threat against Sen. Claire McCaskill raises legal questions”


POLITICO

“We must — we have no choice — we must lower our taxes. And your senator, Claire McCaskill, she must do this for you, and if she doesn’t do it for you, you have to vote her out of office,” Trump said to loud applause and whistling from the audience. “She’s got to make that commitment. She’s got to make that commitment. If she doesn’t do it — we just can’t do this anymore with the obstruction and the obstructionists.”  MORE

“Obama rodeo clown not one of Missouri’s “finer moments,” W.H. says”

A “post-racial society” is a long way off!

Updated 6:40 p.m. ET

The White House isn’t saying much about a State Fair event in which a rodeo clown riled up the crowd as a bull chased a masked man imitating President Barack Obama.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest says he had no reaction from Obama. But he says that personally, as a native of Missouri, “It was certainly not one of the finer moments in our state.”

Missouri’s elected officials have denounced Saturday’s rodeo clown act as disrespectful.

Scott Holste, spokesman for Missouri’s Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon, said Sunday in an email that Nixon “agrees that the performance was disrespectful and offensive, and does not reflect the values of Missourians or the State Fair.”

The state’s second highest-ranking official, Republican Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, denounced the performance in a tweet Sunday, saying it was “disrespectful” to the president.

Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Democrat, said in a statement on her website, “If what’s being reported is true, then it’s shameful and it’s unacceptable.”

The event featured a man wearing an Obama mask with an upside down broomstick attached to his backside who was positioned on the arena’s dirt floor as if he were a dummy. Another clown drew cheers from the audience as he asked if they wanted to see “Obama run down by a bull.”

Todd Akin, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Missouri, who said that victims of “legitimate rape” don’t get pregnant because “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” The President said that Rep. Akin’s comments show “why we shouldn’t have a bunch of politicians, a majority of whom are men, making health care decisions on behalf of women.” Watch the President’s entire responsehere, and share it with others:
