MEQUITE Texas (KSDK) - A rodeo in Texas ended its championship weekend by featuring a clown in a President Obama mask.

You may remember earlier this month when a clown mocked the president at the Missouri State Fair. It gained national attention and led to the clown getting a lifetime ban.

A rodeo in Mesquite, Texas proudly promoted an event this weekend with multiple clowns wearing masks of presidents. The rodeo organizer promised the event would be in good taste, but some believed it was poor timing.

Organizers say other presidents have been featured at the Mesquite, Texas rodeo over the past five decades, but this year marked the first time a clown dressed as President Obama made an appearance.
