Via Sandra Rose: Sunday’s fiasco at a presidential Inauguration event must have seemed like shades of Desiree Rogers to the Obama administration.
If you recall, Obama’s attention-seeking Social Secretary Desiree Rogers resigned her post after an uninvited couple crashed a White House event and got close enough to the president to take a picture with him.
On Sunday, rapper Lupe Fiasco — who has sharply criticized Obama in the past — was kicked off the stage during an anti-Obama rant at the StartUp RockOn Inauguration Celebration at the Hamilton Live.
Foreign policy reporter Josh Rogin live-tweeted the bizarre scene as it unfolded before him.
First the stage lights were cut, then Fiasco’s microphone (and the stand that it was attached to) disappeared — but none of that deterred him any. Fiasco continued to rap as the live band played on. As the crowd cheered him on, the 31-year-old rapper was quickly surrounded and dragged off the stage by Obama’s burly Secret Service agents who couldn’t care less about free speech under Big Brother [Obama]‘s watch.
Maybe the Obama administration forgot about that interview that Fiasco did with MTV in which he referred to Obama as the “biggest terrorist … in the United States of America”?
Someone’s head will roll after this latest fiasco.
