Well, at least it’s the volunteers, says the Obama campaign. During a rally in Detroit, two Muslim women wearing headscarves wanted to sit behind Obama but were denied. One volunteer said it was because of the political climate and another said it was because no one with head coverings could sit behind the podium.
Bill Burton and Obama spokesperson said, “This is of course not the policy of the campaign. It is offensive and counter to Obama’s commitment to bring Americans together and simply not the kind of campaign we run. We sincerely apologize for the behavior of these volunteers.”
We all know Obama just did not want to look like a Muslim and have a picture of it to send around. So they blamed the volunteers and that was that. I bet Obama will say, “These aren’t the volunteers I knew!”
