*The University of Tennessee bookstore in Knoxville has pulled packages of breath mints poking fun at President Obama after a Democratic lawmaker complained.
The product, “Disappoint-Mints,” features the blue and red-hued picture of the president that was popular during his 2008 presidential campaign.
State Rep. Joe Armstrong told The Knoxville News Sentinel he found the breath mints offensive. He said a student had notified him of the mints so he decided to go to the bookstore to investigate.
He said the breath freshener was “very specifically insulting to the president” and said the university should be sensitive to what he called “politically specific products.”
