By Paige Lavender The Huffington Post – Republican Texas homeowner Bud Johnson has a “lynched” empty chair on display in his front yard in what is likely a display of opposition to President Barack Obama.
A photo of the display at Johnson’s Northwest Austin home was posted by Burnt Orange Report on Thursday.
When asked about the display, Johnson said he didn’t “give a shit” if it was offensive and went on to criticize the president.
“I don’t really give a damn whether it disturbs you or not,” Johnson told Burnt Orange Report. “You can take [your concerns] and go straight to hell and take Obama with you. I don’t give a shit. If you don’t like it, don’t come down my street.”
