Somebody hand President Barack Obama a Bay Breeze cocktail with a bendy straw, stat, because he looks positively ready for a tropical vacay in his chic summer suit.
POTUS debuted his tan suit at the White House briefing room today during a news conference, where he addressed threat of the ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Sometimes a heavy topic calls for a light suit, apparently.
As soon as the president approached the podium clad in a tan (or we'd say closer to beige, really) suit and a stone gray tie, the Internet buzzed and Twitter exploded with comments: What is Obama wearing?!
We've cherry-picked some of the best Twitter reactions: From from former President Jimmy Carter to Morgan Freeman's Principal Joe Clark character in Lean on Me, the comparisons are flyin'. Take a look:
