(DAILY CALLER) — Illinois Democratic Rep. Bobby Rush, who was escorted off the House floor for wearing a hooded sweatshirt Wednesday in protest of the Trayvon Martin case, defeated President Barack Obama in a 2000 Illinois congressional primary race.

Rush slammed Obama in an interview with The Chicago Reader published on March 17, 2000, saying, “He went to Harvard and became an educated fool,” adding, “We’re not impressed with these folks with these eastern elite degrees.”
