A distasteful outhouse labelled “Obama’s presidential library” raised eyebrows at the Montana GOP convention over the weekend.

According to The Missoulian, the wheeled outhouse was riddled with fake bullet holes and contained a fake birth certificate for Barack Obama, which was stamped “bullshit.” Graffiti on the outhouse read “For a Good Time,” and listed fake numbers in reference to first lady Michelle Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Many so-called “birthers” believe there is persuasive evidence that Obama was not born in Kenya and created a fake birth certificate to become eligible to be President of the United States.

Montana Republican Party Chairman Will Deschamps told The Missoulian he did not know who brought the outhouse, which was parked outside the convention.

“It’s not something I’m going to agonize over,” he said. “Some of that stuff is not real good taste. We do have a president of the United States, and we have to honor that.”

The outhouse also appeared at the Memorial Day parade in Corvallis.

“Never have I been so embarrassed for the residents of this valley as I was when the Republican float passed by,” one Corvallis resident told The Missoulian. “Behind one of the pickups was an outhouse with the sign ‘Obama Presidential Library.’ I don’t care who you are or what party you vote for, Barack Obama is our president and deserves our respect as the Commander-in-Chief of our country.”
