A truly disgusting display of racism at the DreamWorks Animation facility on Tuesday, when a hateful man stepped in front of the crowd and launched a tirade towards the President mocking his ears as an “inspiration for Shrek.”

The man?  President Obama.

Politico reports (h/t Weasel Zippers):

President Barack Obama on Tuesday stopped by DreamWorks Animation in Glendale, Calif., scoring cheers from the crowd for Obamacare as he also joked about inspiring the look for “Shrek” and compared Congress to the “The Godfather.”

Obama wrapped up his West Coast trip with a stop at the campus of the animation studio, whose CEO is Jeffrey Katzenberg, a major Obama donor and supporter. During a tour before his speech, Obama visited a recording studio and watched actors Steve Martin and Jim Parsons record lines for their upcoming animated film, “Home.”

“I would like to work here,” Obama told the crowd. “I have asked Jeffrey. The only concern I had was the lights were kind of dim in the offices, and I’m pretty sure I’d fall asleep. But there’s a natural connection between me and DreamWorks. I don’t know if you know this — but my ears were one of the inspirations for Shrek. That’s true, true story.”

How do I know this is an example of racism?  Because liberals like MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell tell me so.  O’Donnell took the opportunity to chastise a political cartoon that featured the President with over-sized ears as a “racist obscenity.”

O’Donnell then went on to claim the offending cartoonist needed a family intervention.

Does the President need one too?
