Barack Obama definitely seems to be enjoying his post-presidential life: he’s currently in Scotland enjoying all things Scottish, including a round of golf and some of the local delicacies.
So it makes perfect sense that Obama was given an Irn-Bru to really get a taste of the country.
However, this picture has gone viral and is making Scots unhappy for one particular reason.
Hold the phone: is that sugar free Irn-Bru? Many think this is a tragedy beyond belief!
Imagine giving Obama diet Irn Bru. Could've been worse and handed him that new Xtra stuff that pretends to be sweet still but isn't.— Holly McCormack 🏴 (@Hollz2012) May 26, 2017
Who the hell gave Obama sugar-free Irn Bru?!?!— Matt Kilcoyne (@MRJKilcoyne) May 26, 2017
What treachery to all that is scottish and holy is this? https://t.co/YrmqOESdUT
Obama has been given Diet Irn Bru. This is a major snub. If he were still President he would be justified in launching a nuclear war https://t.co/hfMFX5DyXq— Niall Deacon (@nialldeacon) May 26, 2017
Some are just plain disappointed.
It just isn’t what the former president of the United States deserves!
Others are just glad he’s at least getting a taste of Scotland.
Barack Obama drinks Irn-Bru. Once he's wolfed 6 cans of Skol & washed it down with last night's curry, then he's tasted the real Scotland.— Barry Anderson (@BarryAnderson_) May 26, 2017
And safe to say Irn-Bru is happy with a good bit of free publicity.
Unfortunately, no pictures of the former president actually drinking the Irn-Bru have been spotted, but no doubt Obama would have loved the orange stuff if he did give it a go.
