Earlier this week, we reported that a Washington state mayor was under fire after he called Michelle Obama a “gorilla face” on Facebook.
Now, new details have emerged about what Airway Heights Mayor Patrick Rushing said, and it has been revealed that he came after President Obama as well.
According to Huffington Post, Rushing also called President Obama a “monkey man.” An investigation also revealed that he has written 75 other online posts that liberals deem “offensive.” These include a post that calls for the Obamas to be “hung for treason,” and a joke about the pilot of Air Force One throwing them and Oprah off the plane.
These comments led the local city council to call for Rushing’s resignation this week.
“When a figurehead makes comments such as these that sets us back and it’s hard to come back from,” police chief and acting city manager Lee Bennett.
Rushing, however, is refusing to back down.
“I made a mistake. I owned up to my mistake,” Rushing told the press. “If I do resign that’s admitting I’m a racist and I’m not.”
Rushing added that the comments were just a “playful back and forth banter that my friends and I do.”
Liberals can kick and scream as much as they want, but it doesn’t look like this guy is going anywhere.
