Rush Limbaugh explained to his radio audience Wednesday afternoon, that he thought the portrayal of President Obama as a rodeo clown was “hilarious.”

“I’m looking at the picture now, I think it’s funny,” Limbaugh said. “I’m sorry. I think it’s hilarious just looking at that. See, I happen to like satire, parody and caricature. I happen to be an expert at it.”

Limbaugh added that the worst thing the clown called Obama was “goober,” which Limbaugh reminded his audience was another word for peanut.

“I did not know that goober was a racist word,” Limbaugh said.
