CNN — A Republican U.S. Congressman from Texas has a message for the controversial rodeo clown who wore a President Obama mask at the Missouri State Fair.
Representative Steve Stockman says the unnamed clown is welcome to perform in his state.
It comes after the clown was banned from the Missouri State Fair following backlash from the performance.
The clown wore a mask in the likeness of the President at a rodeo performance Saturday with a broom handle stuck up his backside.
An announcer then asked the audience if it would like to see President Obama run over by a bull.
Fair officials have apologized for the stunt and called it "unacceptable."
But, Stockman called the performance "a harmless gag."
No word if the clown will accept Stockman's offer.
