Michele Bachmann Talked About John Wayne Being From Her Home Town, But He Wasn’t… Serial Killer John Wayne Gacy Was
Michele Bachmann was in Waterloo, Iowa to officially launch her presidential run, and Fox interviewed her in front of her childhood home. She said, quote:
"Just like John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa, that's the kind of spirit that I have too." The problem is, John Wayne WASN'T from Waterloo, Iowa... serial killer John Wayne Gacy was.
He's the guy who dressed up like a clown and killed 33 boys and young men between 1972 and 1978.
(Although John Wayne's parents met in Waterloo, but moved to another town before he was born.)
If anything, he is fair, Steven Colbert defended Michele on her mistake, and actually found her a "positive" spin.
