Barack Obama, at a recent rural elementary school assembly in West Virginia, asked the audience for total quiet. Then he started to slowly clap his hands once every few seconds, the audience in total silence.
Then he said into the microphone, 'Children, every time I clap my hands together, a child in America dies from gun violence.'
Then little Richard Earl, with a proud West Virginia drawl, pierced the quiet and said: 'Well, dumbass, stop clapping!'
