The Actual Circus Just Put Out A Call For Political Civility

Posted: Oct 19, 2016 9:25 PM

Many have described this election as a "circus." The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey have taken offense to this, and have issued a plea to debate moderator Chris Wallace to please keep things civil during Wednesday's debate.

The Ringling Bros. also started a #TakeBackTheCircus campaign, saying that they are not happy with the characterization of the breakdown of political civility as a "circus."

We here at Ringling Bros. have had enough of the media calling this year’s election a “circus." In fact, we're downright insulted! Ladies and Gentlemen...we are Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey – The Greatest Show On Earth that’s not political.

If you’re as tired as we are by this blatant misuse of the term circus, join the movement and tell the media to stop the madness.

Share below to help us #TakeBackTheCircus. Because guess what?! The circus wants the circus back!

Well said.
