Must not mock Hillary
An 81-year-old Rhode Island store owner has come under fire on social media for dangling a 'lyin' Hillary Clinton doll from what customers described as a 'noose'.
Customers have slammed Tony Polseno Jr, the owner of Pleasant View Orchards store in Smithfield, for the controversial display of the pant-suited plush toy near a Donald Trump election campaign sign.
He said a customer purchased the doll online and gave it to him, so he decided to hang it from his wall.
The doll makes statements that include, 'Not a single one of my emails was classified,' when it's squeezed.
It also says 'I don't believe I ever lied — to the public' and 'When I got off the plane in Bosnia I had to dodge sniper fire,' the Providence Journal reported.
Yelp and Facebook commenters are offended by the doll's placement.
Polseno's wife, Camella, told the Journal the couple have received at least one harassing message.
The 'Lyin' Hillary Doll' sold out the day after the election, the Journal reported.
