I heard that the twittersphere got all twitterpated because President Obama wore a tan suit at his press conference yesterday. Well, if that’s what sets off the bird-brains, so be it.
But now I hear that Rep. Peter King (R-NY) is angry about it, too. Via TPM:
“There’s no way any of us can excuse what the president did yesterday,” King said on NewsMaxTV on Friday. The interview was flagged by Buzzfeed. “When you have the world watching … a week, two weeks of anticipation of what the United States is gonna do. For him to walk out —I’m not trying to be trivial here— in a light suit, light tan suit, saying that first he wants to talk about what most Americans care about the revision of second quarter numbers on the economy. This is a week after Jim Foley was beheaded and he’s trying to act like real Americans care about the economy, not about ISIS and not about terrorism. And then he goes on to say he has no strategy.”
So wearing a tan suit makes him appear un-presidential? Really?
Okay, Mr. King, if you say so.
