Rush Limbaugh weighed in on the recent uproar over a Mo. rodeo clown wearing a President Obama mask during a bull-riding event, saying that it’s “no different than those countries reacting freakishly when there were cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad,” Mediaite.com first reported.

“It is as though President Obama is a messiah or is a god,” he said, “and this little thing that happened at the Missouri State Fair is a defamation, a denunciation, almost a religious sacrilege that took place.”

“This is no different than what happened in all those countries that had the cartoons of the prophet and militant Muslims had a cow over it, went nuts,” he continued. “We have a president who’s above criticism, above being mocked, above being laughed at? We have not just a president, we have an entire Democrat political party and the American left which thinks that they are so damn special that they cannot be mocked, they cannot be made fun of.”

Mr. Limbaugh attacked President Obama for not trying to put a stop to the witch hunt.

“If I were the president of the United States and this was happening in the country that I was president. I would put a stop to this, he said. ” … The next time I was on TV, I’d reference it. I’d have a smile on my face, I’d laugh about it, and I’d have everybody calm down.”
