“Elect a clown, expect a circus”

"(If you) Elect a clown, expect a circus” is a political saying that has been printed on many images. “Obama meets with George Clooney instead.  If you elect a clown, expect a circus” was posted on Twitter by Barbara M on October 14, 2010. “Bumper Sticker seen today in La Crosse: ‘If you elect a clown, expect a circus!’ #RecallWalker” was posted on Twitter by Wisconymous on December 2, 2011.

The saying has been used in the United States to criticize both Democrats and Republicans.
