Neighbors Concerned By Trump Inspired Thing Man Hung Outside His Home

It’s kind of a sticky situation when politics starts impacting your relationship with your neighbors, but that’s exactly what has happened to a man in a historic Fort Wayne, Indiana neighborhood. It seems his neighbors are uncomfortable with a doll that looks like President Donald Trump being hung from a tree that showed up in the front yard of a home after the presidential inauguration.

The life-size Trump doll is hanging from a tree with a noose and is covered with the red flag of the former Soviet Union.

“It was kind of shocking,” neighbor Jared Paden commented. “Honestly, I don’t necessarily like it. I’m not really excited about it being in my neighborhood.”

A local Fort Wayne TV station had been told the home is owned by a middle-aged an army veteran, but knocks on the door and ringing the doorbell went unanswered when the reporters tried to interview the man.

“I don’t think it’s respectful to Trump and a lot of people that voted for him to be president,” Paden went on “I don’t think they should do it, but I think it’s their right...”

Several anti-Trump signs adorn the home. One sign displays vulgar language and is placed inside a window of the home.

There is also a banner hanging across the home: “Trump is a disgrace to America & makes me ashamed I ever served.”

A couple of other signs note the home is protected by alarms, closed circuit television, and loaded guns.

Oakdale Neighborhood President Tom Tiernon released a statement for the media: “We’re all for free speech, but we are concerned that a line has been crossed and about what to do next.”

The statement also noted the neighborhood association is discussing possible actions.

Of note, Fort Wayne police spokesman Officer Michael Joyner remarked that there is nothing the department can do as the homeowner is merely exercising his rights of free speech.
