Hollywood legend John Wayne must be turning in his grave!
Presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann, who is becoming as famous for her on-air gaffes as she is her Christian right-wing views, made another major faux pas Monday.
The Minnesotan made a triumphant return to her hometown of Waterloo, Iowa to officially announce her run for presidency, but when a microphone was placed in front of her things all went a little awry.
Explaining that just like John Wayne, the all-American hero and cowboy, she too was from Waterloo, Iowa – hence she chose the location to announce her candidacy.
However, it’s another John Wayne – John Wayne Gacy, the serial killer, that actually lived in Waterloo – the veteran actor was from Winterset, around 150 miles away.
Gacy was incarcerated in Waterloo for attempted sexual assault prior to killing dozens of young men and boys during six-year murder spree.
