A Washington state mayor has refused to resign after he posted racist comments about President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama on Facebook. Despite local residents calling for his resignation, Airway Heights Mayor Patrick Rushing has refused.

According to local news station KHQ6, Rushing came under fire after saying on Facebook, “Gorilla face Michelle, can’t disagree with that. The woman is not attractive except to monkey man Barack. Check out them ears. LOL.” He said resigning would concede him as a racist. Actually, calling the Obamas monkeys and gorillas makes you a racist.
