Quite the fiasco indeed.
The only thing missing was a giant vaudeville hook to collect rapper Lupe Fiasco after he was asked to leave and then forcefully removed by security from a stage in Washington during an Obama inaugural celebration event on Jan. 20.
According to CBS News, the 30-year-old artist was performing his song “Words I Never Said" at The Hamilton and rapped during the track, “Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist/ Gaza Strip was getting bombed, Obama didn't say sh-t. That's why I ain't vote for him, next one either."
