Washington state mayor Patrick Rushing, who recently compared US First Lady Michelle Obama to gorilla, has decided not to resign his post over the controversy as this would be conceding that he is a racist.

According to Raw Story, Airway Heights mayor came under fire when he posted an offensive comment on his Facebook page stating that gorilla faced wife of US President won’t even disagree that she’s not attractive except to monkey man Barack Obama as they have alike ears.

Rushing later explained that the comment was just a playful back and forth banter that he and his friends did, and also apologised that he has made a mistake, but if he would resign then it would be equal to admitting that he was a racist.
