‘Not Racist’ Mayor Who Called Michelle Obama ‘Gorilla Face’ Refuses To Resign
He says if he resigned it would be “admitting I’m a racist and I’m not.” Latest.com reports:
In a post on Facebook, Airway Heights Mayor Patrick Rushing described Obama as a gorilla.
“Gorilla face Michelle, can’t disagree with that,” the message said. “The woman is not attractive except to monkey man Barack. Check out them ears. LOL.”
Rushing stood his ground, claiming that his comments were humorous and not meant to be taken seriously.
Rushing offered a crappy apology, but local citizens weren’t buying it and called for an official resignation.
“I made a mistake. I owned up to my mistake,” Rushing insisted. “If I do resign that’s admitting I’m a racist and I’m not.”
No, making a post comparing our country’s first black president and his wife to monkeys confirmed that he’s a racist.
