Professional Barack Obama Impersonator Reggie Brown was told to leave the stage at the Republican National Conference Saturday, after making several offensive jokes about the President’s biracial ethnicity.
According to a POLITICO article, the act “came just one day after two high-profile Republicans — Haley Barbour and Bobby Jindal — urged activists to focus only on going after Obama on policy and not engage in personal attacks.”
According to a biography on his website, Brown “is an event planner’s dream,” whose “ability to capture the voice, movements, and persona of President Obama… not only captivates your audience, but engages them in (an) interactive multimedia show that draws laughs from both sides of the aisle.”
“Brown didn’t just limit his jokes to Obama, though. He also mocked Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith, ridiculed Newt Gingrich’s faltering campaign and suggested Tim Pawlenty needed a spinal transplant,” the POLITICO article read. “As Brown was preparing to make a Michele Bachmann joke, one of the conference’s officials came out to the lectern and told the comedian to leave the stage.”
