TUF castoff Bollinger on Obama: 'I wouldn't mind whoopin' his little a**'

Remember Cody Bollinger? You know, the kid UFC president Dana White angrily kicked off The Ultimate Fighter? Right, the first guy in 13 seasons to miss weight on the show and not even get to fight.
Well, for some reason Bollinger thought people cared about what he thought of President Obama. The disgraced former TUF castmate posted on his Facebook that Obama is a bigot.
"I wouldn't mind whoopin his little a** once," Bollinger wrote, which Bloody Elbow was kind enough to grab a screenshot of. "Keep it up Obama."
The cause of his anger? Obama omitted the words "under God" from the Gettysburg Address, which he read aloud as part of a project celebrating the 150th anniversary of the legendary Abraham Lincoln speech.
White House spokesman Jay Carney explained that the president was reading "the version of the address that Ken Burns provided." Burns, Carney noted, is a "noted Civil War scholar."
If Bollinger was an MMA scholar, he'd know that bad-mouthing Obama didn't fair well for Jacob Volkmann, who pretty much made ripping the prez his gimmick while he was with the UFC.
Of course, his words got him put on administrative leave from his volunteer wrestling coach job at a high school and the UFC cut him a year later, though that was mostly because he was a boring fighter, not a revolutionary.
Ironically, Volkmann is now working for World Series Of Fighting, the same company that quickly snatched up Bollinger once it was known he got thrown off The Ultimate Fighter.
Bollinger also added in his Facebook post that "Obama is anti Christian and honors Islam. Gettin sick of this bigotry."
Sounds like fighting words. The question is: Can Bollinger make weight to face the Commander-In-Chief?
