Excelsior Charter School

CRESTON (CBSLA.com) — A rodeo clown didn’t leave many people laughing in San Luis Obispo County this past weekend when he made a racist joke about first lady Michelle Obama.

Michael Hayhurst, a professional rodeo clown and barrelman, got on the PA system at the 17th Annual Creston Classic Rodeo Saturday and said, “Playboy is offering Ann Romney $250,000 to pose in the magazine, and the White House is upset about it because National Geographic only offered Michelle Obama $50 to pose for them.”

Parents at an Excelsior Charter School in Victorville said they can’t believe it, especially because Hayhurst serves as the school’s superintendent...
