It seems never-ending that the presidential office continues to be blatantly disrespected as folks from the highest and lowest echelons of society continue to take racist jabs. Now the popular daily deal website Groupon has placed its spin on a fragrance by mocking the White House.
Groupon, which was launched six years ago, recently promoted the fragrance Armani Eau de Nuit Men’s Eau de Toilette Spray with the following description:
Armani Eau de Nuit Men’s Eau de Toilette Spray
- Modern and natural men’s fragrance
- Great for refined events such as a rib dinner at the White House
- Notes of bergamot, pink pepper, cardamom, iris, and heliotrope
- Deeper notes of nutmeg, cedar, tonka, and amber
- Introduced in 2013
- 1.7. fl. oz. spray bottle
The unbelievably shameless description used for the designer scent is just a perfect example of what has become the new normal: a lack of respect for the office of the presidency. Many African-Americans, including Black lawmakers, and even White Democrats and Liberals, have taken note that the disrespect for President Barack Obama stems from continued racism in this country. These same racists have repeatedly attempted to demean and even cripple the office of the president with their unsavory and ill-advised jabs.
Thankfully, Obama has kept his stride despite his constant haters.
For shame, Groupon!
