Washington state mayor has refused to resign over a Facebook post that compared President Barack Obama’s family to gorillas and monkeys because he says that it would be conceding that he is a racist.
According to KYQ, Airway Heights Mayor Patrick Rushing came under fire earlier this week after he confirmed that he had posted the offensive comment on his Facebook page.
Rushing explained the remark as “just playful back and forth banter that my friends and I do.”
Although Rushing offered an apology, the Airway Heights City Council decided on Tuesday that he had not gone far enough, and asked the mayor to resign. But he refused.
Goober alert…I wonder if this asshole has looked at his ears.
