"I was absolutely offended," Phillips told KOCO. “He is the president of the United States and it actually is about respect … because this person is still alive.”
The man behind the decoration is Dwayne Dockens, who says the tombstone is harmless. He told KOCO it has been part of his Halloween routine for the past three years and he had never had a complaint from neighbors.
The tombstone shows Obama’s name and a question mark for his date of birth. It does not indicate a death date.
“[My family and I] made them a few years ago back when it was a big deal, questions up about [Obama's] birth certificate," Dockens told KOCO. "And we made all these ourselves so just thought it was kind of humorous and, you know, went ahead and put him in there as well.”
