Keepin' It Klassy: GOP Convention In NOLA Welcomes Obama Lookalike To Boos And Jeers

I tell you, Klassy with a "K", these GOPers: Barack Obama impersonator Reggie Brown was a surprise guest at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans. Brown took the stage to laughter a few shouts of "Where's your birth

I tell you, Klassy with a "K", these GOPers:

Barack Obama impersonator Reggie Brown was a surprise guest at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans.

Brown took the stage to laughter a few shouts of "Where's your birth certificate?"

Hoo! That's a knee-slapper there! Hey, remember when liberals couldn't criticize the president in a time of war because that made meant the terrorists won?

But then it got better when Brown devolved into racist jokes...no, seriously.

Prior to a speech by RNC Chair Reince Preibus, an Obama impersonator took the stage and told a series of racist jokes. A summary from Arron Blake:

• On Black History Month: “Michelle celebrates the full month. I celebrate half.”

• “My mother loved a black man,” but “she was not a Kardashian.”

• A picture was shown of Obama and the first lady when he took office. The impersonator then showed a picture of what the Obamas will look like when the president leaves office, and it was the characters of Fred Sanford and his sister-in-law, Ethel, from the show “Sanford and Son.”Doug Heye, the RNC’s communication director in 2010 tweeted: “Wonder why many minorities have problems with GOP? Hiring Obama impersonator to tell ‘black jokes’ at SRLC, for starters.”
