RLC: Obama Impersonator Pulled Offstage For Offensive Jokes

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.”

    This is funny. The GOP protests when they are picked on and so do the Democrats. Talk about a bunch of kids. Same old story–they can dish it out but they can’t take it. I have no sympathy for any of them. The old saying–you reap what you sow applies.

      The lady that was there at the Conference said he was “roasting everyone and they loved it. He had simply gone over his alotted time. So much for what the news told us.
      Makes you wonder what else the news gets wrong.

    From what I have seen and heard this Reggie Brown guy was great.He is the best impersonator of President Obama I have seen so far and his jokes were real tame and not offensive in my view.He was taken off stage when he made some cracks about GOP contenders and all of a sudden they lost their sense of humor.You know the old they can give it but they cannot take it.

    I thought the Obama impersonator was hilarious. The ones who got overly sensitive about his material could learn to have a laugh. We’re all adults. Sometimes we even need to learn to laugh at ourselves. It was all really meant in fun. I could just imagine the person in charge of the entertainment being told by the powers that be to “Get that S.O.B. off the stage now!”. ;-)

      I had an acquaintance that was there and she said the reason he got pulled was he had gone over his time allotment.

        I wrote about what she said about the Ron Paul supporters on the Ron Paul won the straw poll.

    I saw the whole thing and It was not the Obama jokes that got him in trouble. Only after he began to spread the jokes to the conservatives did it become offensive. I do not know what Marcy Bonebright saw or was told. The fact is they can dish it out but can’t take it

    This article didn’t stay on the front page of PLD very long.I guess they fail to see the humor also.
