Spring Lake Business Owner Depicts Obama As Witch Doctor
A Spring Lake business owner’s window display which depicts President Barack Obama as a witch doctor is generating support and outage.
The display in a window of Skuby & Co. Lifestyle Clothing in Spring Lake includes an image of the president’s head superimposed on the body of a witch doctor above the word “ObamaCare.”
PICTURE: See the storefront display
There’s a tombstone featuring a picture of the president with a stethoscope and the inscription, “I Told You I Was Sick.” A mannequin also wears a hat with a derogatory Obama acronym.
Store owner Bill Skuby tells the Asbury Park Press the display is personal, not political. Skuby says he deals with “a 1 percent customer.” He says business has been thriving.
However, Nancy Pugliese says it’s disrespectful and portrays the town as racist.
