Leaders of an Iowa city have denounced a resident's controversial snow display that depicted a figure appearing to shoot two snowmen, one wearing a Bernie Sanders T-shirt and the other wearing a Democratic Party hat.

Mike Matson, the mayor of Davenport, said he asked the city's police chief to investigate the display, which he called "an embarrassment to our city."

“My personal reaction is that it’s terribly wrong,” Matson told the Quad-City Times. “All hate speech is wrong.”

The figure is seen entrenched in a snowbank donning an army helmet and sunglasses while holding an assault rifle, a chain saw, and what appeared to be a beer stuck to it. Reports did not indicate if it was an actual rifle, but it was pointed at the snowman in the Sanders shirt, which has red dye in the snow near its head.
