PORTLAND, Ore. — An elementary school principal is barring a fifth-grader from wearing a Barack Obama mask in the school’s talent show because parents have complained it’s inappropriate.

Dru Lechert-Kelly, 11, hoped to dress presidentially and dance to a YouTube parody that features an Obama look-alike and a rap called “I Can Do Whatever I Like.”

The skit features him in a navy blue suit, white shirt, red tie, black shoes and an Obama mask purchased at a costume shop — one like Obama himself once donned for a Saturday Night Live sketch. The choreographed routine rehearsed Thursday ends with Dru on the floor in the splits and was met with applause from students and teachers.
