There is no higher honor than having a cowboy clown wear a grotesque mask of your face while the announcer asks, "Who wants to see this guy trampled?" (3:28)

REPORT.

THANK YOU, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

MUCH.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

FOLKS, FOLKS, YOU KNOW WE

ARE STILL-- IF YOU KNOW

ANYTHING ABOUT THE NEWS

BUSINESS, FOLKS, AUGUST IS

NOTORIOUSLY A SLOW NEWS

MONTH.

WHO CAN FORGET THE SUMMER OF

'75 WHEN WALTER CRONKITE DID

A TEN PART SERIES ON SPOONS,

THE MIDDLE CHILD OF THE

DINNER TABLE.

(LAUGHTER)

STILL, EVERY FEW AUGUSTS YOU

GET A STORY SO BIG YOU CAN'T

HELP BUT SINK YOUR TEETH

INTO IT.

AND TONIGHT I'M PROUD TO SAY

WE HAVE THE LATEST ON THE

GRIPPING STORY OF THE RODEO

CLOWN WHO PUT ON AN OBAMA

MASK.

(LAUGHTER)

YES, I'M SURE YOU ALL KNOW.

SOME SAID THE MEDIA WOULD BE

THROWN OFF THIS RODEO STORY

IN A SECOND.

(LAUGHTER)

BUT NOBODY, NOBODY RIDES

THIS KIND OF BULL LIKE THE

HEROES OF CABLE NEWS.

JIM?

>> FROM THE STATE FAIR ASKED

THE CROWD IF THEY WANTED TO

SEE A RODEO CLOWN WITH AN

OBAMA MASK RUN DOWN BY A

BULL.

ANOTHER CLOWN PLAYING WITH

THE OBAMA MASK SLIPS.

>> A RODEO CLOWN WHO

PERFORMED DURING THE

MISSOURI STATE FAIR WHILE

WEARING A MASK OF PRESIDENT

OBAMA HAS BEEN BANNED FROM

PERFORMING AT THE MISSOURI

STATE FARE EVER AGAIN.

>> THE MISSOURI RODEO COWBOY

ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT, HE

ALSO RESIGNED IN THE MIDST

OF THIS CLOWN FALLOUT.

>> THERE IS SOME NEW FALLOUT

OVER THIS WHOLE RODEO CLOWN

ISSUE.

THE RODEO ANNOUNCER AT THE

EVENT NOW STEPPING DOWN AS

PRESIDENT OF MISSOURI'S

RODEO COWBOY ASSOCIATION HAS

ALL OF THIS GONE WAY TOO

FAR?

>> Stephen: OH, IT'S GONE

WAY TOO FAR.

THE CLOWN'S BEEN FIRED.

THE ANNOUNCER RESIGNED.

THE COWBOY ASSOCIATION'S

PRESIDENT HAS RESIGNED.

AND COUNTLESS BULLS HAVE

BEEN JABBED IN THE GONADS

WITH ELECTRIC CATTLE

PRODUCTS.

EXCUSE ME, I'M BEING TOLD

THAT LAST THING IS JUST PART

OF THE ENTERTAINMENT, CARRY

ON.

AND FOLKS, THIS STORY GOES

BEYOND THE GIANT POWER

VACUUM ATOP MISSOURI'S RODEO

COWBOY ASSOCIATION.

IT'S MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING.

AND NOBODY ADOES NOTHING

LIKE FOX NEWS DANA PERINO.

JIM.

>> RODEOS, EVERY PRESIDENT

IS ALWAYS MADE FUN OF.

THEY ARE THE SUBJECT OF

RIDICULE.

THIS IS THE HEIGHT OF

ACHIEVEMENT, TO BE MADE FUN

OF BY THE RODEO CLOWN, IS

ACTUALLY SUCCESS.

THIS IS A BIG DEAL IF YOU

GET MADE FUN OF BY THE RODEO

CLOWN, YOU HAVE MADE IT.

>> EXACTLY.

I MEAN NOBEL PAEZ PEACE

PRIZE, MEH, FIRST BLACK

PRESIDENT, WHAT ELSE.

BUT THERE IS NO HIGHER HONOR

THAN HAVING A CLOWN RUN

AROUND A DIRT ARENA WEARING

A GROTESQUE MASK OF YOUR

FACE WHILE THE ANNOUNCER

ASKED THE CHEERING CROWD WHO

WANTS TO SEE THIS GUY

TRAMPLED?

AND YES, BARACK OBAMA HAS

NOT THANKED THE RODEO

CLOWNS.

I GUESS I SHOULDN'T BE

SURPRISED.

HE NEVER SEEMED GRATEFUL

WHEN THE TEA PARTY HONORED

HIM WITH
