Fashion Plate

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.

Obama Speaks on the Situation in Ukraine

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?

Check this out:


Okay, Mr. King, if you say so.

  1. But…..But….But, Rep. King said he wasn’t trying to be trivial. Can’t we forgive him for being trivial since it obviously wasn’t his fault that he was trivial? Besides, my husband and I think it was a beautiful suit.

  2. But see, there’s a difference in the FACE color. That’s what makes what Obama is wearing so unacceptable.

    • White is ok between Memorial Day and Labor Day – but if he wore it after Labor Day, then watch the snide comments fly (oh wait, they have since before he entered office…).
